  • AVATAR - Application of Virtual Anastylosis Techniques for Architectural Research, (2021-2021) - Responsabile Scientifico

    UE-funded research - H2020 - Excellent Science - Marie Curie

    View project record on CORDIS

    Abstract

    For anastylosis, historical data, temporal analyses and the current study of the element, are fundamental components that serve as a basis for decision making in CH reconstruction, restoration, management and dissemination. The ambitious purpose of AVATAR (Application of Virtual Anastylosis Techniques for Architectural Research) project is to contribute to anastylosis techniques with a new approach based on the latest technological fields.AVATAR intends to develop and optimize a set of procedures and tools to interpret the structural and conservation status in the architectural heritage, supporting decision-making and promoting the change of current practices towards preventive approaches to conservation, under the slogan It is better to prevent than cure.Thanks to our knowledge of the history of CH assets, it will be possible to prevent their deterioration in the future. These developments will contribute towards European excellence, enriching the society and helping in the cultural integration of the respected assets.

  • AF3 ADVANCED FOREST FIRE FIGHTING, (2014-2017) - Responsabile Scientifico

    UE-funded research

    Abstract

    The AF3 project intends to provide an extraordinary improvement to the efficiency of current fire-fighting operations and to the protection of human lives, the environment and property by developing innovative technologies and means to ensure a high level of integration between existing and new systems.To reach this objective, AF3 project focuses on the following areas:• Innovative active countermeasure: implementation of the novel AAFF (Advanced Aerial Fire Fighting) system to accurately and safely disperse extinguishing materials from high altitude by aircrafts and helicopters in any condition: day and night, regardless of weather, smoke and configuration of terrain. It will enable a quick 24H response, minimizing fire duration and damages. The AAFF system can be adapted to a wide variety of aircrafts or helicopters.• Innovative passive countermeasures: fast build-up of preventive defensive lines of capsules to prevent the spreading of fire from forest to populated areas• Early detection and monitoring: integration and deployment of diverse systems including satellites, aeroplanes, UAVs, and both mobile and stationary ground systems for the early detection of fire and for monitoring the propagation of smoke and toxic clouds.• Integrated crisis management: the innovative AF3 Core Expert Engine will perform overall coordination of all fire fighting missions.The results of AF3 will be validated by intermediate tests during the project, and by a final demonstration with flight tests and drilling exercises carried out simultaneously in Spain, Italy, Greece and Israel.
