The aim of the project is to provide the GCC EMC located in the State of Kuwait with operational, ‘state of the art’, tools to support it in making arrangements for, and managing (in a more timely, reliable and coherent manner), any future radiological or nuclear emergency that may affect the GCC region (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates).
This will be achieved by the installation of the JRODOS decision support system in the GCC EMC, its customisation to the GCC region, linking it in real time to radiation monitoring networks in GCC Member States and to meteorological data, and bringing the system into full operational use. The project will comprise three main elements: firstly, ‘proof of concept’ will be demonstrated by customisation of JRODOS for, and linking it to monitoring networks in, one GCC Member State (namely, the State of Kuwait); secondly, following demonstration of the ‘proof of concept’, the system will be customised for the whole of the GCC region and linked in real time to monitoring networks in each of its MS via the GCC-RDEP; and, thirdly, a comprehensive and sustainable training programme will be developed in order to maintain a high level of competence and ‘readiness’ in the use of JRODOS to support decision making in the GCC region following any future radiological or nuclear emergency.
