Solutions

Solution created as a spin-off from the established emergency management organization CCMA (with proven experience and ability to work with Copernicus data/services/activations), connected to the network of experts in the industry which will allow 3D EMS founder team to judge where an opportunity lies and efficiently create added value based on Copernicus benchmark services and products.


3D EMS will start out organically as extension of the CCMA


Digitalization and Automation Of Tried And Tested CCMA Methodologies for Emergency Management and Risk Assessment of Wildfires

Why

As climate change threatens to expand the size of fires and make fire season an around-the-year event, government agencies, insurers/reinsurers, and media companies are turning to satellite data and AI to cut through a chaos of the data that precedes and comes out of these disasters.


3D EMS will act as concierge service for (re)insurance companies and media outlets and offer high value-added applications and services for wildfire emergency management using satellite data supported by a dynamic team of risk management experts to create an exceptional, ‘frictionless’ experience that will bridge the gap between risk managers, emergency journalists and the satellite data and emergency service providers.

Use satellite images potential

Although satellite images have been available for decades, insurers have been reluctant to introduce them into their risk management. To leverage the full potential of this source of data and information, providers and users need to work together more closely.

Save time

3D EMS data products that use satellite imagery to increase efficiency and decrease the time it takes to assess loss, especially in cases of Wildfire natural disasters. 3D EMS will bring satellite technologies to insurers that will enable to establish real-time damage assessment over a large area without having to send in their field agents. This saves insurers time, allows them to promptly assess their risk exposure and more accurately process claims.

Detect significant information

During major disasters (social) media is over flooded with posts and information from many different sources which makes it difficult to detect the significant information for media which would allow them to inform the public in a timely and accurate manner.

Emergency journalism

3D EMS intelligent disaster social media scraping delivers critical emergency intelligence for emergency journalism, reporters and media companies will have an increased virtual presence as they will too have the ability to monitor and research almost everything available in real time.

Increase efficiency

Currently, most fires are reported by 112 calls, commercial flights, or fire lookout stations. That spotty approach lets some wildfires go undiscovered for hours or even days. Even after the immediate threat of a fire recedes, time is of the essence for finding survivors and getting help to the people that need it. But figuring out the best way to get limited available resources to disaster victims is an unsolved problem.

Instant information

3D EMS analytics and wildfire maps are updated with a click of a button. They enable authorities to keep people and assets out of wildfire areas. 3D EMS and near real-time wildfire monitoring system pinpoints the people affected during a crisis and delivering the disaster relief needed. Managers can quickly share damage reports with everyone from international agencies to first responders.

Insurance and ReInsurance

Early loss detection - Losses due to fire events. Is one of our insured buildings affected? Has the risk changed?

  • Geotagging in combination with social scraping
  • Fully automated monitoring of thousands of digital news sources every day → early detection
  • Automated alerts, via 3DEMS SPA/PWA, push notifications, provide information about potential damage to insured objects
  • Tools and maps for calculating burn severity for financial loss assessment

Possibilities to match with risk data portfolio at the same time

  • Automated, faster and cheaper information about insurance relevant loss events.
  • Adjusters can quantify the spread of claim events and screen claims for fraud. This layer of early-stage online claims validation saves companies costs of fraudulent claim payout and the operational expense of in-person inspection.

Database on fire loss events allows in-depth trend detection

  • Identification of high risk areas
  • Faster and more effective claims management

Consolidate information and processes

  • Automated underwriting in non-complex cases at virtually no cost per policy

Workflows supported by artificial intelligence (AI)

  • Faster identification of relevant information enables the finding of hidden connections.
  • For example, visual loss adjustment: Social data combined with data from satellites and drones make it possible to estimate damage to buildings

Media Companies – Emergency Journalism

3D EMS Location based social media and web scraping AI powered solutions collect and analyze social media and web news from world’s most volatile fire hot spots, the machine learning platform is supported by a backend network of live wildfire risk management experts.

Customer brand adopted media summaries/packages during major catastrophic events based on 3D EMS methodology delivered via: online channels (e.g. Skype 3D EMS integration), get in contact with our experts in real time and be the first to publish reliable info during major disaster events.

Maps and simulations with superior UX as a tool for delivery of relevant risk mitigation measures to the general public in affected areas. With real time access to imagery and social data through 3D EMS SPA/PWA, emergency reporters will have an increased virtual presence as they will too have the ability to monitor and research almost everything available.

B2G - governmental institutions in the field of civil protection and disaster management

Copernicus based High Added Value Fire Mapping and Monitoring System Designed to protect the most vulnerable communities and enable sustainable resilience from the outset and throughout the emergency response process - Automated Post-Disaster Assessments in a Fraction of time.

Social media disaster response – 3D EMS SPA/PWA delivered applications for effective scheduling of the rapid deployment of volunteers to rescue victims in dynamic settings.

For fire departments 3D EMS will offer products for modelling fire scenarios. For example: if a fire breaks out in a particular national park and the wind comes from the west, how will the fire spread and where should the firefighters be deployed?. The 3D EMS map is combines social data with satellite images, making the predictive models more accurate.

Contracts to supply the governmental civil protection organizations with the supply of imagery from satellite and social sources with a detailed base map of risks and risk assessments for of the entire contracted area, updated each year. All relevant Government Departments, local agencies emergency Management Groups will benefit from having access to up-to-date imagery of the state to support their decision making, information analysis, risk management and state development. activities.

Regional heat signature based wildfire alert systems with future developments for flood, earthquake and avalanche alerts.

Competition

Most of the competitors offer PaaS solutions which require specific knowledge and additional effort from their customers…

Standard wildfire mapping is:

  • (semi) Manual - Requires in-depth training in EO, many commonly occurring tasks such as map acquisition, data visualization and integration of social data into customer segment workflows have to be performed manually

Insurance is:

  • Manual and hard to manage - Requires ground assessments and field teams.
  • Non-transparent and slow - Can take months to confirm damage for a client.
  • Major (re)insurance players (like Munich Re) have already developed proprietary platforms but still work with limited set of data sources and lack the integration of social data as well as adequate expertise when it comes to managing fire risks

Emergency journalism:

  • Platforms like Echosec focus only on social data but lack the integration with satellite imagery
  • Startups like Sentinel Hub offer high added value products for emergency journalism, still they offer PaaS based products which require additional work on customer side. In addition, their products are mostly 2D and have to be adopted to customer brand on case to case basis
