The project is devoted to the development of a common understanding of the capabilities of vision (optical or thermal) and detection systems on which a fire remote detection network can be based.

The main objective of this project is the technical assessment and operational comparison among remote visual systems and detectors network devoted to monitor wooded areas or areas of particular environmental, touristic and / or cultural interest.

In particular, apart from the definition of an optimal way to obtain the information needed to detect a fire at the early stage, within this project the possibility of exploiting such information for simulating the fire propagation behavior shall be evaluated.

Furthermore the project has the objective to promote the cooperation in spreading and sharing successful practices in reducing the incidence of forest fires or improving the reaction time allowing an enhanced distribution of the human and means resources on the ground.
