The system consists of seven components:
1.A methodology to produce Strategic Evidence-based Alerts for Risks and Opportunities for Cities (CITYZEN-MTS).
2.A continuously developed Secure Access Portal configurable for Web and Cloud Services that enables integrating strategic and operational reports and related evidence produced in the system; turning them into accessible digital contents; indexing and calculate levels of intention and capacity from a situation of threat or opportunity and vulnerability levels of our and others’ targets. It also enables us to address and integrate risk and opportunity hypotheses, to summarize and classify alerts through calculations on evolution and scale tendencies, aiming at an early reaction. Likewise, it allows us to develop planned responses based on defined risk and opportunity alert levels.
3.An IT system of situational awareness and evidence-based Analysis that enables us to produce information of high added value. Thanks to sufficient indexes and patterns and reliable and valid evidence of physical, documentary and analytical nature, it contributes to the production of Strategic City Warnings and to an efficient management of risks and opportunities.
4.A collection system, weighting, anonymity and indexing structured and unstructured information from any source of digital or analog information.
5.A “push” system that allows us, through multiple devices, to signal and spread alerts and primary response plans to users who must know or neutralize them.
6.An organizational structure and management operation of Smart Cities.
7.An advanced methodology of training-design-display and mentoring of Strategic Smart Cities Warning projects based on a dual model.
