Wildfires are hard to detect. Traditional methods such as watchtowers do not make it possible to monitor an area continuously.
Wildfire detection accuracy is low - to reach acceptable accuracy, a fire must be observed from at least two towers simultaneously.
In recent years, forest wildfires have spread dramatically with increasing frequency in all regions around the world.
According to the Canadian Government, during 2018 there were more than 7,000 forest fires that burned down 2.3 million ha of forest.
