OFFER from Bulgaria, reference: TOBG20191120001, valid from 02-12-2019 untill 04-12-2020

  • Title:
    Diagnostic system for assessing the effectiveness of operators in extreme conditions
  • Start date:
    2 december 2019
  • End date:
    4 december 2020 (over 10 dagen)
  • Summary:
    A Bulgarian research unit with long-term experience in R&D of space technologies and products, has developed a specialised device for assessing the effectiveness of operators performing activities in extreme conditions. It is looking for European partners for cooperation on the system's implementation under a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
  • Description:
    This research unit has vast experience in design, development and transfer of methods, instrumentation and technologies for remote sensing of the Earth, regional and global monitoring of the environment and security. It has successfully implemented collaborative project with national and international partners.

    The proposed diagnostic system is intended for assessing the capabilities of a person for coping with complex situations having extreme influence of the factors of the operative environment. Personnel, even being well-trained and highly-skilled, that has to perform activities in extreme / harsh conditions is exposed to serious risk in terms of performance, physical condition, psychological condition, interrelations and even survival. Effective assessment is needed in order to effectively determine the risks and the measures to be taken in that relation.

    During the examination process several things are assessed:
    - Situational vigilance (awareness) – perceptive activity; sustainability, spreadability, volume and selectivity of the attention, work memory, situation assessment
    - decision making
    - ability to cope with insufficient and contradictory information
    - adaptability to changes in the environment
    - ability to execute simultaneously running activities
    - stress management – flexibility, emotional stability, readiness for rejection and stressors management
    - the individual profile of the physiological reactions in stress management

    The research units is seeking commercial agreements with technical assistance with industrial partners in order to adapt the system to their specific needs and requirement providing know-how and expertise.
