GMV takes part in Malaga University’s Security and Emergency Conference

On 28 and 29 April GMV took part in Malaga University’s 10th Security, Emergency and Catastrophe Conference, organized by the Chair of Security, Emergency and Catastrophes of Malaga University and the Department of Psychobiology and Methodology of Behavioral Sciences.

This two-day conference, held for the tenth time, took in lectures, panel discussions, workshops and exhibitions and displays by emergency stakeholder bodies. Outstanding national and international speakers dealt with current civil and military themes to do with psychological and healthcare-based intervention, logistics, rescue procedures, civil protection and integral security in emergency and disaster situations.


GMV ran a stand displaying its wide range of security and emergency solutions, such as the advanced perimeter-surveillance and access-control systems; border control and surveillance systems; crisis and emergency management systems; monitoring and management systems for vehicles and personnel of security forces and emergency organizations; ship and port surveillance and inspection systems; command and control systems; cybersecurity solutions; risk-prevention systems based on satellite-image processing; healthcare and telemedicine solutions, and also the company’s capabilities in the integration of RPASs in security and defense systems.


During this event GMV also held two specific workshops. One of them dealt with hegeo®, its inhouse resource-management, -control and -analysis tool for public services and emergencies. The other workshop dealt with technologies and innovation in crisis management at different scales, centering on defense and security projects such as Close-Eye and Driver (Driving Innovation in Crisis Management for European Resilience). Juan Carlos Llorente, GMV’s Robotics Business Development Manager, also took part in the panel discussion “Research and development of technologies in the field of emergencies”.

The event wound up with a large-scale, multi-scenario, accident-simulation exercise involving twelve hours of intervention by many different organizations including civil and military resources.
