The basic goal of the forum is to become a platform for experience, knowledge and know-how exchange for different types of interested parties in the SGL for USaR project (

It is meant to be used by project's members and external interested parties alike. We believe the cross-pollination this forum aims to provide, between project members, external experts and general public will inevitably make the outcome of this project more consolidated, more oriented to real world challenges and better equipped to deal with a bigger set of scenarios.
The technology forum will also be of paramount importance in disseminating the project's guidelines and multiple developments entailing scientific, technological and operational information that we wish to disclose and hopefully discuss with you, who are now reading this newsletter. For this we've set up a web based platform on which you can participate and use in a number of ways.

The forum helps members to stay informed by reading articles written by project's members on multiple areas of the project. Since SGL for USaR project is constituted by multiple work packages, you should be able to find, among others, articles on scientific issues, such as methods to increase accuracy of human life detection, on technology issues, like the wireless sensor networks used to transport all this vital information and, of course, operational, ethical and medical information that should be of great interest to the people out there working on the field. For our knowledgeable readers in any of these areas, we can even accept articles and host them on the forum if they are evaluated to be be of interest for our purposes.

Members can participate in online discussions on issues related with search and rescue operations or any of the aforementioned categories with affinities to the SGL for USaR project. They can also subscribe to digital services such as the electronic version of this newsletter, participate in polls, etc.
