COSMIC proposes an innovative approach for the detection of CBRNE materials allowing fast inspection of a large number of containers and vehicles in seaports and in crossing borders, through a three-stage detection system using a new set of innovative sensors. The idea behind this approach is to create a fast and reliable solution where only non-suspect containers will be released quickly after each stage, and only the suspected containers will continue to the next stage. 

Our role

Atos, as the leader of the ‘System Analytics and User’ workstream, is in charge of the development of the COSMIC system, which will enable the analysis of the outputs of different devices and sensors, as well as other information received from external sources, in each detection stage. The software and algorithms developed will manage and control both the data and sensors in order to provide relevant decision-making to enable the CBRNE flow charts.
