Decision Support System for marine munitions (DSS)
The DAIMON tool for risk categorization & decision aid is developed by Clausthal University of Technology in cooperation with EGEOS GmbH and the remaining DAIMON partners. For each detected munition object, the software formulates risk analysis documents, involving facts about the location and overall state of the ammunition, the surrounding environment and state of biological pollution/damage. Furthermore, it recommends possible actions, such as recovery & destruction, accumulation, encapsulation, capping, blasting or non-action, including monitoring and costs thereof.
The DSS is a online software which can be deployed on any computer, taking into account a multilevel security provisions given the sensitive content. Its users will be public institutions dealing with the management of marine space (maritime, environmental, fishery, military) and offshore economy stakeholders. More information can be found in the DSS Easy-to-understand Presentation
Traffic lights for the release of chemical weapons from dumped ammunition
It has been decided to establish simple non-numerical guidelines for assessing hazards from chemical weapons leaking out from dumped ammunition. These guidelines developed by FFI (Norway) will act as starting points in the DAIMON Decision Support Software (DSS), and will be refined when more knowledge concerning the hazards from such dumped ammunition becomes available.
