INGENIOUS will develop a Next Generation Integrated Toolkit for Collaborative Response. This will comprise a multitude of the tools and services required:

  • for enabling protection of the FRs with respect to their health, safety and security;
  • for enhancing their operational capacities;
  • for allowing shared response across FR teams and disciplines.

In the project, DXT is in charge of researching, designing and developing user-intuitive interfaces using a Mixed Reality technologies enabling the support of first responders and the hands-free exchange of information among them.


FASTER addresses the challenges associated with the protection of first responders in hazardous environments, while at the same time enhancing their capabilities in terms of situational awareness and communication. FASTER provides innovative, accepted, and efficient tools for :

  • Data collection providing a secure IoT platform for distributed, real-time gathering and processing of heterogeneous physiological and critical environmental data from smart textiles, wearables, sensors and Social Media;
  • Risk assessment providing tools for individual health assessment and disaster scene analysis for early warning and risk mitigation.
  • Resilient communication at the field level providing haptic communication capabilities, emergency communication devices, communication with K9s; and at the infrastructure level through 5G technologies and UAVs.
  • Efficient Cooperation and Interoperability amongst first responders, LEA, community members and other resource providers to request and deliver assistance where and when it is most needed using blockchain technology to give everyone involved the ability to write and read data (including sensor data) on an open source platform to speed up disaster relief to a whole new level.
  • Tactical situational awareness providing innovative visualisation services for a portable Common Operational Picture for both indoor and outdoor scenarios representation.
  • Operational capabilities providing flexible, multi-functional autonomous vehicles, including swarms of them, for extended inspection capabilities and physical mitigation.
  • Improved ergonomics providing augmented reality tools for enhanced information streaming, as well as body and gesture-based interfaces for vehicle navigation and communication.

In this project, DIGINEXT is in charge of developing the Augmented Reality capabilities of the FASTER system. Our ambition is to provide First Responders with fast, non-disruptive and reliable AR information to support them so that they can focus on their safety tasks and keep their hands free. This includes AR navigation assistance to easily navigate within large hazardous buildings.


Evacuating a large passenger ship is a safety-critical and strictly time-bound task and a complex decision-making process based on the evolving situation and the information available.
SafePASS will radically redefine the evacuation processes, evacuation systems/equipment and international regulations for passenger ships in all environments, hazards and weather conditions, independently of the demographic factor, by developing an integrated system, based on DIGINEXT's Crimson platform, that will collectively monitor, process and inform during emergencies both crew and passengers of the optimal evacuation routes, coupled with advanced, intuitive and easy to use Life Saving Appliances, resulting to a significant reduction of the total time required for ship evacuation and increased safety.

In SafePASS, DIGINEXT is in charge of providing an holographic Common Operational Picture (COP) enabling the display of the fastest and safest evacuation routes for passengers, along with situational information, anywhere on the ship.


The IN-PREP project is establishing and demonstrating a next generation platform enabling a reference implementation for operational preparedness and crisis management coordination.

In this project, DIGINEXT is in charge of the Mixed Reality training platform that enables to put first responders and decision makers in conditions as close to real ones as possible using Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies.
