Genasys Partners in European Union-Funded Project to Revolutionize Public Warning

Project AWARE Developing Solution to Receive and Process Galileo Emergency Warning Satellite Service Messages

SAN DIEGO, CA March 26, 2024Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in protective communications systems and solutions, today announced that it is a partner in Project AWARE, a project funded under the European Union’s Horizon Europe Programme (Grant Agreement No. 101082555) that goes beyond smartphone-based alerting by developing a solution that will extend the reception and processing of Galileo Emergency Warning Satellite Service (EWSS) public safety warnings into display panels, indoor warning systems, and acoustic devices.

In the next few years, the European Commission will launch the Galileo EWSS, which will utilize a constellation of medium earth orbit satellites to alert people in the event of natural or man-made hazards. The Project AWARE solution will be integrated in fixed devices, including display panels, speakers, long-range acoustic devices (Genasys Protect ACOUSTICS) and other connected devices which can alert citizens via audio, video, and text alert messages even when telecommunications networks are disrupted or down.

Genasys CEO Richard Danforth said, “By making ACOUSTICS EWSS-capable, civil protection authorities can ensure public safety alerts reach individuals who may not have access to their mobile devices or during telecommunications service disruptions. Genasys’ experience in innovating satellite-connected speaker systems that broadcast audible voice messages with exceptional clarity qualified us to partner in this consortium. Genasys Protect ALERT will be used to conduct an end-to-end Project AWARE demonstration with the Republic of Slovenia Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief, a customer and consortium member.  With the frequency and scope of disasters ever increasing, Genasys’ participation in Project AWARE and our extensive experience in designing and building software and hardware emergency warning solutions, perfectly position us to support the growing need of regional and national governments to enhance access to Public Warning Systems (PWS).”

Project AWARE brings together eight partners from four countries with the necessary knowledge, expertise, and technical capacity to extend the capabilities of Galileo EWSS. Telespazio France and the European Emergency Number Association (EENA) have experience in the design and deployment of public safety services, FDC is a secure Global Navigation Satellite System solutions provider, and Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), the French space agency, is the future  operator of the Galileo EWSS service center. JCDecaux and Genasys are PWS equipment providers and solution integrators. The Republic of Slovenia Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief will host one of the demonstrations planned at the end of the project. Last but not least, the University of Strasbourg will study and demonstrate synergies between the Galileo EWSS and the Copernicus Emergency Management Service.
