Keywords: emergency rescue, communications command, integrated, geographical information systems, cartography
Abstract. With the rapid development of remote sensing, geographic information (GI), artificial intelligence (AI) and other technologies, China is continuously strengthening emergency rescue innovation and numerous breakthroughs related to emergency rescue technologies and equipment which have been made through the National Key Research and Development Program. This paper first proposed and illustrated the concept, connotation and characteristics of integrated space-air-ground emergency rescue communication command from the perspective of mapping and geographic information, and then analysed the challenges faced by the integrated space-air-ground emergency rescue communication command in China. Subsequently, a space-air-ground emergency rescue command theoretical system is introduced by combining broadband emergency communication, accurate acquisition of real-time disaster information, disaster situation and scenario projection, emergency communication command services, and resilient emergency rescue command. The proposed integrated space-air-ground emergency communication and command design concept will be applied for China's disaster emergency rescue and command in the future to comprehensively improve the emergency rescue communication and command capability in China.
