- About TRIP
Increased safety and security of metro vehicles from terrorist attacks by explosives and fire bombs through materials choices and design, thereby increasing resilience and reducing the impact of attacks on passengers, staff, infrastructure and property.
The goal of SECUREMETRO is to develop validated materials selection and design strategies for building metro vehicles with intrinsic security features. The project will consider threats from conventional explosives and from fire bombs. The project objectives are:
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 fire bomb 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 several work packages (WP) to meet the aims and objective of the project. These work packages are:
The European Commission
SECUREMETRO: D5B-02 (179 Kb)
SECUREMETRO: D5B-03 (13682 Kb)
