Final Report - FORFIRE (System for highly-reliable, cost-effective, early-detection and accurate localisation of incipient forest fires)

Project ID: 231481
Funded under: FP7-SME


This is the final summary report for the FORFIRE project. Funded under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), FORFIRE's main aim was the development of a very rapid, highly reliable, continuous, remote and cost-effective fire detection and location system able to report incipient fires for optimal fire fighting deployment and early-stage application of fire suppression. FORFIRE's product is an outdoor fire detection system using an innovative solar blind camera only sensible to the vacuum-ultraviolet part of the spectrum. The report covers initially a brief overview of the project context and then refers to the project strategy and final product. Furthermore, it briefly covers the work performed and final results and closes with the results' potential impact.
