National ICT Australia (NICTA), Australia’s Centre of Excellence for information and communications technology (ICT), today announced the launch of a third Priority Challenge Strategic Project, Smart Applications For Emergencies (SAFE). SAFE aims to help save lives and minimise economic impact from natural and man made disasters by improving prevention, detection, prediction and recovery co-ordination.

Advanced video surveillance systems have attracted a great deal of attention since they were used to track the movements of the terrorists responsible for the July 2005 attacks on the London Underground. According to NICTA, the challenge now is to develop systems that can help prevent attacks, rather than just record events as they unfold.
