Specificities of this unit

The purpose of this unit is:

- to function as relay station in case the Interdepartmental Operations Centre (COGIC) or any other lower level Area Operations Centres (COZ, COD).

- to assist the political authorities (Ministers, Prefects) in charge of Operations Directorate, a modern and adapted tool, if necessary close to the scene (PCO), or during the organisation of large-scale events (PCI).

- to be assigned for important events in regions where the local centres (COD) have suffered damage and consequently are out of service.

This unit is completely self-sufficient and can be deployed, parked and operative in less than one hour.


It has an inside floor space of 65sqm, comprising the main functions of a command centre (decision, observation and communication, command).

It is mainly composed of three spaces: in front the zone for decision, in the centre the zone for observation and communication and at the rear the zone for command.


  • Decision zone:

The front part of the semi-trailer can receive four officials round a working table plus a particular corner for discussion (two armchairs and a low table). In addition there is a secretariat. This zone is equipped with informatics and flat screens which give access to all television channels and the pictorial reports which are required for the crises management.

A WC and a kitchenette are rounding up this zone.


  • Observation and communication zone:

The centre of the unit is designed for the observation and communication of all information. It is practically identical to an Interdepartmental Operations Centre (COGIC) with an officer for stand-by duty (team-leader), one duty officer, two special operators (stationary and cartographer) and two communications operators.

The unit is equipped with all the apparatuses for crises management and communication (informatics, flat screen walls,
radio systems, ISIS, RESCOM, RGT, Pablo, RIMBAUD, satellite link, fax …).


  • Command zone:

The rear of the semi-trailer houses the crisis room with a table for 12 persons, completely equipped with informatics, means of communication and a flat screen wall.

In addition there are two workplaces, one for information about geography and one for geomatics (SI2G).

This room can also be used for press conferences by the authorities.


On the outside of the semi-trailer are two flat screens with loudspeakers integrated into the bodywork. They are intended forbriefing or for an external press conference.

The inside and outside finish of the semi-trailer are of premium quality so as to be a showcase for the French Civil Defence (operations may also be possible outside the French territory).
