  • Review and assess “new AIR” against the same criteria, its security and (lack of) available technical documentation;
  • Review and assess the possibility to participate in the development of an AIR database for the whole island;
  • Provide recommendations and budget estimations to the Contracting Authority on possible further funding to support any of three options (i.e. upgrade “current AIR”, upgrade “new AIR”, develop new AIR which can be used island wide).
