The project brings together a vehicle builder, system operator and researchers to develop a design methodology validated by laboratory and larger scale tests for building metro vehicle able to cope with blast and firebomb attacks. It uses innovative solutions to integrate and exploit existing technologies, materials and systems to increase inherent safety and security of vehicles. This includes interaction between the intrinsically more secure vehicle and the infrastructure on which it runs.
SecureMetro is divided into six workpackages to meet the aims and objective of the project:
The roles of each participant are described here.
