Active Eco-Wildfire Management System

Innovative method to planning and execution of Strategic Forest Fuel Management and Prescribed Burning techniques in forests to reduce risk of wildfire. Test
ProSystem prototype demonstration in operational environment.
Prototype near or at planned operational system. Represents a major step up from TRL 6 by requiring demonstration of an actual system prototype in an operational environment.
Currently this planning methodology was applied in some areas in Portugal, in production forests and conservation areas protection. Some of the planned management proposals were carried out, and there is some information about the performance in operational environments. However wasn’t made a monitoring and consistent evaluation of the post-planning and implementation phase. Next works require the collection and evaluation of data relating to operational effects on the spread of fire and suppression actions in real fire conditions.

How does it work?

The proposed approach is based on studying fire patterns and fire regime in the areas of intervention, focusing treatments in locations where the effect will be greater, allowing the performance of suppression means safely and with greater likelihood of success, and use techniques to maximize the effectiveness of treatments in time, such as the use of prescribed burning or change of land use.
