Communication System for Emergency Telemedicine
DELTASS (Disaster Emergency Logistics Telemedicine Advanced Satellites System) has been developed for the European Space Agency (ESA) by CNES, the French government space agency. DELTASS uses both geostationary and low earth orbit communication satellites enabling `top-down` management of emergency workers dispersed across a disaster zone, as well as letting medical experts located hundreds of miles away to carry out on-the-spot diagnoses of casualties. Such a fail-safe communication system for emergency telemedicine greatly multiplies the effectiveness of rescue workers within the affected area, especially as existing communications networks might not have survived. The hub of the DELTASS system is this Medical Field Hospital, set up within the disaster area. It is from here that mobile teams` activities are co-ordinated, patients are gathered, treated and their data tracked, and decisions are made about evacuating them elsewhere.
