A crisis is usually a natural or man-made disaster, an industrial accident, a confrontation or an act of malevolence. We address them all at Airbus.

Natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, forest fires, hurricanes or volcanic eruptions, as well as man-made disasters regularly cause significant adversities for the population and damage to infrastructures and the environment.

Also, no matter the precautions taken, industrial accidents can never be fully prevented. And confrontations or acts of malevolence are basically constant in our world.  Thus improving anticipation and reactivity to mitigate the impact of disasters is crucial for all actors in the crisis management and disaster response domain.

Your trusted partner for providing scalable crisis management solutions

An effective crisis management is always a collaborative effort at governmental, community and private levels. A high degree of coordinated collaboration between all actors needs to cover all stages of the crisis management cycle - from effective prevention and preparation through reliable detection, evaluation and rapid response through to the recovery and learning phase.


Capitalising on longstanding experience, Airbus helps civil protection and emergency services by delivering advanced solutions both in communications and geo-information systems through the entire crisis situation. Our solid assets and services are customised based on the user’s needs, while remaining scalable and adaptable.
