DSS Validation, V2
The aim of the present deliverable is to present the second version of the DSS validation process. It includes the description of the software verification process, the results from the first tabletop for the DSS validation, the results from the first S&R Use Case and the description of the simulated scenarios, object of the second tabletop. The second tabletop took place on July 23, 2022, and all the members of the panel of experts (instituted previously) were invited to participate with the task of identifying possible shortcomings or important user requirements not already considered in the development of the DSS in its current version.
The second tabletop will involve only the evaluation of the PHYSIO DSS, since the SOT DSS was already object of evaluation in two previous Use Cases (UC1 and UC5).
The PHYSIO DSS, even if partially integrated into the COncORDE platform was not tested by the users, during the two previous use cases because at that time it required even more integration work to take full advantage of its functionality. On the other hand, the integration process of the various components and technologies developed during the S&R project will continue for the entire duration of the project. As in the first meeting with the Evaluation Committee, also in the second meeting various simulated scenarios were presented (described in Section 6) to illustrate the functionalities of the S&R PHYSIO DSS platform from the user's point of view.
Feedback gathered will serve to improve the component even if its second and final version has already been submitted. The upcoming real Search & Rescue Use Cases will be however an occasion to test the modified versions of the DSS.
Section 2, Methodology, summarizes the DSS validation approach, Section 3 details the software verification; Section 4 summarizes the results from the first tabletop; Section 5 shows the results from the SOT DSS validation (post-exercise phase) in the real setting of the UC1 and UC5; Section 7, Conclusions, summarizes the results achieved and their usefulness in relationship with future work to be performed.
