Fires are complex ecological perturbations that have always brought mankind to face dangerous situations. For this reason, it is vital to install systems that can:
- supply the required information to calculate the ignition risk indexes,
- identify fire hotspots early,
- use forecast systems for propagation of the flame front.
In order to do all this, the system takes into account several variables, including: monitored weather data, geographic layout of the landscape; conditions on the ground; number, distribution and type of buildings located in the monitored area; images from thermal and visible cameras with panoramic system and panning, with day and night optical elements and dome cameras that can be remotely operated. All information collected is used to support fire management and control, to declare the state of alert, to issue prohibition and safety measures for the population, to plan scheduled fires or other activities associated with managing combustibles and to prevent large fires.
