Nelen & Schuurmans’ Flood Forecasting System will develop a flood early warning system that is useful for both immediate calamity management and long-term planning, through two software solutions that can be run through cloud-based computing from any laptop/tablet.  The interactive interface allows one to visualize how water flows during the actual simulation, and also interact with it. With the AI based simulation, the user can let it rain, generate storms or break levees, adapt elevation or change the interception of an area. An example here.    Learn more


Seismic AI’s End to End Managed Earthquake Early Warning System (EEWS) covers all aspects of designing, deploying, maintaining, monitoring and improving the performance of the network.  The core of SeismicAI’s EEWS is a unique real-time seismic algorithm that uses Array Seismology to locate the epicenter (back-azimuth), and several unique non-empirical algorithms to estimate the magnitude and expected ground shaking at any location. The algorithm is driven by a state-of-the-art real-time, distributed computing environment that reduces the number of stations / nodes drastically, and supports real-time seismic processing even in the harsh settings where the stations are often located.   Learn more


Project OWL’s Post Disaster Internet Connectivity provides wireless devices basic connectivity for messaging and information. Project OWL developed an innovative unified network infrastructure of hardware, firmware, and software to create a seamless plug-and-play solution. The DuckLink is a wireless device that provides basic connectivity for messaging and information.  DuckLinks may be deployed in networked clusters to form the ClusterDuck Network in the air, on the ground, on the water, or underground. The open-source nature of Project OWL’s technology makes it an effective solution to distribute code and knowledge to affected communities without requiring on-the-ground manufacturing and teams for deployment. Learn more


deaForge manufactures fully customizable, high capacity drones that can be deployed for defense, homeland security and enterprise solutions. ideaForge’s drones will aid the chosen SDMA in; disaster preparedness through surveillance, survey and mapping, disaster response and relief by acting as first responder to provide on-ground situational awareness, and disaster recovery by conducting post-disaster damage assessment.   Learn more


Pragathi foundation is to pilot a Two Way Community Based Connectivity using a Wifi based 2 way Local Radio, that caters to the information needs of rural communities living in a particular locality, which includes portable transmission and receiving devices using open source technology. The pilot is to be implemented in tandem with the chosen SDMA in signal dark areas that have hitherto never been connected to the outside world through any means of telecommunications. The communications solution is low tech, remote community based DRM and focuses on awareness creation. It is also highly cost effective. Learn more.


Saif Seas has developed Autonomous Drones for Rescue, a remote operated buoy that functions as a zero risk rescue device.  The buoy has a strong communication range of up to 3kms that can be extended to 10kms if necessary.  The buoy is fully customisazle and can be retrofitted with HD cameras, robotic probes or weaponry and designed as per the needs / requirements of the SDMA.   Learn more
