Abstract: 

The Akriveia Beacon focuses on locating personnel trapped in buildings during small scale disasters such as fires and low magnitude earthquakes. This is achieved by incorporating a combination of advanced Ultra-wideband radio modules and microcontrollers to create a dependable indoor positioning system using trilateration methods. We believe our system allows search and rescue operator to safely and reliably locate victims during an emergency or disaster. Therefore, lowering the search a rescue time and increasing the chances of rescue and survival for trapped victims.

The documentation provides an overview of the Akriveia Beacon system and presents the scope, risks, and benefit analysis of the product. It will then examine current market and potential competitions and discuss project budget, funding and cost considerations.
