This paper presents the work that is currently performed in the E-SPONDER (FP7-242411) project. E-SPONDER is a project co-funded by the European Commission under its Security Program. E-SPONDER is a suite of real-time data-centric technologies that will provide information and communication support to first responders which act during normal and abnormal events (crises). It will investigate the use of interoperable communications that will facilitate the uninterruptible link between the first responders at the operations theatre and the crisis managers at the Emergency Operations Center. To achieve that, a novel architecture is introduced that brings satellite communications in the spotlight of effective first response work. The paper demonstrates the way satellite communications will be integrated to the E-SPONDER system in order to ensure always-on communications and data exchange.
