They will allow timely automatic detection of potentially dangerous unattended items, identification and tracking of perpetrators, and will include an advanced crisis management system. The start of Phase 2 wasn’t the only objective of the event. Additionally, during the plenary meeting we summarised the current progress of specific Work Packages and provided the members of the User Observatory Group with an update on the PCP process.

The Call off for Phase 2 was launched on April 19, 2023. The deadline for submitting offers was May 8. All five successful Contractors of the Phase 1 submitted their offers. They were evaluated by the KEMEA Procurement Board, Technical Management Committee and Procurement Evaluation Committee. Finally, four tenderers were awarded a Phase 2 contract:

  • DAIMON Consortium – CS GROUP France, CERTH, XXII Group
  • Protecting Railway Transportation via Artificial Intelligence Consortium – Satways Ltd., Imotion Analytics, Vicomtech
  • BULL SAS – Bull SAS (Atos)
  • PANOPTES Consortium – Herta Security S.L., ChapsVision, ACIC SA

The Prototype Development Phase (Phase 2) will last 7 months. The Phase 2 Contractors will install their Prototypes in the SNCF controlled lab environment, directly connected to 50 cameras from the real CCTV system of Paris Nord Station. The goal is to measure and verify the technical performance of each solution in real conditions (Factory Acceptance Test), and their readiness for a pre-operational deployment.

During Phase 2, the Public Buyers will request from the contractors a series of deliverables in order to evaluate their progress based on a predefined set of criteria. On completion of Phase 2, the R&D providers will each deliver the End of Phase 2 deliverables requested by the Consortium, describing the performed activities and the obtained results of Phase 2, the IPR, ethics and security handling and an updated business/commercialisation plan.
