C4Control Ltd (C4C) was founded in October 2015 as a sister company of Satways Ltd. (a Greek company founded back in May 2006) in order to further develop Satways’ products and promote them in the Global market. The company is developing integrated Geospatial Command and Control solutions for Security and Public Safety applications for police, coast guard, emergency medical service, civil protection and fire & rescue operations, critical infrastructure protection, transportation security and border monitoring.
Role in the project
C4C’s role in the project is to develop geophone-based detection systems (WP5). In addition, C4C is providing the ENGAGE C2 that will be adapted to support SaR operations, generate operational picture, coordinate the field units and share information with other incident and crisis management systems of other involved agencies. Both developments will be tested in lab first while the overall performance will be validated during trials. C4C will also participate actively in all dissemination and exploitation activities (WP7).
