Abstract: Multi-Agency Cooperation In Cross-border Operations (MACICO) is the Celtic-Plus project with 9 partners from Finland, France and Spain; duration Dec 2011 – May 2014.It develops a concept for interworking for security organisations in their daily activity. It deals with cooperation of security organisations that do not use (in their day-to-day job) the same radio network, but in some missions could take benefit from a sharing of their respective infrastructure. Use cases such as pursuit of criminals across a border, close support of vehicles going through a border, and disaster relief operations require security organisations from both countries to communicate together and to continue to communicate with their control room. The plenary lecture presents the scope and results of the MACICO research project achieved so far.

Brief Biography of the Speaker: Dr. Jyri K. Rajamaki received his M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from Helsinki University of Technology (HUT), Finland in 1991, and Lic.Sc. and D.Sc. degrees in electrical and communications engineering from HUT in 2000 and 2002 respectively. From 1986 he works for Telecom Finland. From 1996 he was with the Safety Technology Authority of Finland where his main assignment was to make the Finnish market ready for the European EMC Directive. Since 2006 he has been with Laurea University of Applied Sciences, Espoo, Finland, where he serves as a head of Laurea’s Data Networks Laboratory. Dr.Rajamaki had 17 years experienced in electro technical standardization, e.g. being 7 years the Secretary of Finnish national committee on EMC, and 10 years the Chairman of Finnish Advisory Committee on EMC. He has been a member of several EC working groups, e.g. EMC-ADCO, EMC Working Party. His research interests are electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) as well as ICT systems for private and public safety and security services. He has been scientist in charge for several research projects funded by EURESCOM, CELTIC or the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation. E.g., he has been the Scientific Supervisor and Director of the following research projects: SATERISK (focusing on risks and challenges of satellite tracking in cross-border operations), Rescuing Intelligence and Electronic Core Applications RIESCA (risks analysis of essential CIIP systems and a method to minimize risks in new system), MACICO (develops a concept for interworking of security organisations dealing with cooperation of security organisations that do not use the same radio network in their day-to-day job, but in some missions could benefit from infrastructure sharing) and Mobile Object Bus Interaction MOBI (enhances ICT integration of emergency vehicles and creates a base for an emergency vehicle concept suitable for export.) He has authoredmore than 80 papers published in international journals and conference proceedings.
