The future of human civilization is evolving towards dense city environments where people concentrate for economic and strategic reasons. On parallel lines, cities are being transformed into Smart Cities with the help of progress in science and technology. One of the primary goals of a Smart City is to be people-centric i.e. to serve the citizens. Due to the global climate change the necessity to set-up methods and infrastructures to deal with disasters has become even more urgent. The cities need to be prepared for future Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Recovery (HADR) Operations. The success of these operations will depend to a large degree on the quality of Situational Awareness (SA) and the instantaneous sharing of all relevant information among the various disaster recovery agencies. Future HADR operations that require multi-agency or even multi-country cooperation will thus be dependent on interoperability concerning information exchange. This paper presents a n architecture and system concept for fast Situational Awareness (SA) assimilation and provisioning in HADR operations. The concept aims to enable the coalition disaster recovery agencies to cooperate with each other by utilising existing Smart City assets and parallelly deploying their own assets.
