FAQ

What happens in the Control Room

When a new alert is received the control room performs a quality control on it. The quality index is a decimal number between 0 and 1, being 0 a poor quality alert and 1 a good quality one. The index value does not guarantee that the alert is actually useful for identifying potential events or enrich current events with additional information; the effective evaluation of the alert is entitled to the operator. The users that send several alerts with a poor quality could be excluded from the system and reported to the competent authorities.
