Summary STAR-TRANS objective is to develop a comprehensive Transportation Security Risk Assessment Framework for assessing related risk and provide cohered contingency management procedures in interconnected, interdependent and heterogeneous transport networks. The aim of proposed Transportation Security Risk Assessment Framework is to formalise the linkage between risk incidents, transportation network assets and dependency types between assets in order to assess the impact of an incident on the affected interconnected and interdependent networks. The proposed Transportation Security Risk Assessment Framework will consist of a modelling formalism to specify transportation network structure, assets and dependencies between assets, as well as ICT-based supporting tools to generate impact assessment reports on interconnected and interdependent transportation networks in cases of risk incidents.
