Together with NATO Innovation Hub, and the Dutch Ministry of Defence, Get in the Ring is looking for startups and scale-ups to help NATO ensure health and safety, and aid first responders in pandemic situations.
First responders are at the frontline whenever there is a public health emergency. The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has shown us that we need to quickly provide first responders with the best technology and resources so they can protect the health and safety of people around the world.
This Innovation Challenge is seeking innovative solutions that will enable leaders, and teams of first responders to utilise information systems to help identify false information and mitigate the effects of this information on generating a true common operating picture, predicting behaviours, and supporting decision making in order to protect themselves and civilians.
A great solution should consider one or multiple of the following solution directions:
1) Real-Time situation Dashboard- Gather, sort, and discriminate information concerning the space of operations.
- Select the optimal course of action.
2) Team and Population Support.- Actively push and receive real-time information to and from ground teams in a secure way.
