When it comes to safety, public and private partners increasingly depend on reliable information. In addition, operational information is shared quickly with other parties to whom the information is relevant, such as the police, private security and other helpers. CCTV, smart sensors and social media play an increasingly important role in all this.

iCOOP started in  2009 in the Brainport region with the development of net-centric security chain. The iCOPP Platform as a Service is developed in collaboration with the Dutch Institute for Technology, Safety & Security based on the Triple Helix approach Government, Science and Industry concluded. The system is particularly characterized by the support and integration of the various video management and sensor systems. Its openness and brand independence has been a core requirement in the development of the iCOPP. Especially governments place high demands on the openness of the platform.
