  1. 1. Automatic and On-board Forest Fire 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Monitoring System Antidio Viguria, Francisco Javier Pérez, Antonio Jiménez, Jorge Cordero, Luis Díaz Andalusian Foundation for Aerospace Development (FADA) Center for Advanced Aerospace Technologies (CATEC) Spain
  2. 2. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Contents • Motivation • Introduction • System Description • Solution Validation • Added Value for the Post 2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction • Conclusions
  3. 3. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Motivation • Forest fires are a major cause of environmental degradation in the Mediterranean countries • Economic losses are linked to industry (forestry, timber industry, agriculture, tourism…), societal losses are linked to the environment, biodiversity, air and water quality, and flora and fauna. Prevention is important, but extinction is critical
  4. 4. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Introduction • MONIF project “Monitoring and measurement of forest fires using helicopters” (2009-2012) promoted by FAASA Aviación S.A. • Forest fires airborne monitoring operations needed to be enhanced, improving aerial means capacity to detect, monitor and provide situational awareness of fire
  5. 5. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org System Description • An innovative airborne monitoring system was developed consisting of: – Remote sensing subsystem – On-board processing unit – Pilot Human Machine Interface (HMI) – Geographic Information System
  6. 6. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Remote sensing subsystem • Ad-hoc manufactured payload • Suite of sensors: – pointing device (laser altimeter) – electro-optical high definition camera – long-wave infrared (LWIR) radiometric camera
  7. 7. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org On-board processing unit • Capabilities – Payload management (pointing, camera zoom, focus or exposure time parameters varying) – Real-time processing of the acquired data – Image segmentation process: fire front and hotspots extraction – Automatic geolocation of the acquired images for their georeferencing – Relevant data sending to a ground station for forest fire operations coordination (high availability, low bandwidth requirement)
  8. 8. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Pilot Human Machine Interface • Advanced pilot HMI: touch screen interface • Remote control of the payload – Camera selection (RGB, infrared) • Minimum pilot interaction • Remote data sending to the ground station server
  9. 9. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Geographic Information System • Situational awareness and planning of the forest fire extinction operations • Ad-hoc Geographic Information System (GIS) plugin • Automatic detection of new information stored in the ground station server • Information: – Georeferenced images – Fire front coordinates • ArcGIS or Google Earth interfaces
  10. 10. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Solution Validation • On-board integration and certification • Flight tests
  11. 11. Added value for the Post 2015 Framework for 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Disaster Risk Reduction • How did your work support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action: – Knowledge, technology and expertise must assist in the enhancement capacity building for disaster risk reduction – The presented solution promotes the application of remote sensing, geographic information systems and communication tools for early warning, risk assessment and reduction, information sharing and efficient management – The solution presented provides a substantial improvement compared to current forest fire monitoring methods which are based on pilot visual situational awareness, voice communications and manually introduced data at the Emergency Mobile Units • From your perspective what are the main gaps, needs and further steps to be addressed in the Post 2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in – Research: research on disruptive technologies, for instance Remotely Piloted Aircraft – Education & Training: use of Disaster Management advanced simulators – Implementation & Practice: make the most and promote the use of new technology – Policy:
  12. 12. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Conclusions • Added Value solution improved method of fire detection and representation with a high level of automation and precision • This solution provides invaluable information for the Emergency Mobile Units to manage the forest fire extinction operations. • Technology trend: use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems* * www.atlascenter.aero, www.catec.aero
