Your partner in early forest fire detection!
Efficient wildfire detection, monitoring & control system

Problem

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.

Facts

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.

Solution

Smoke detection by video surveillance cameras:

  • Fast information exchange and rapid reaction.
  • Cameras fully scan the surveillance area once every 10 minutes.
  • The system registers dangerous events and sends an alert to the system operator.
  • Unique fire location calculation algorithm.

How it helps? 

AmpliCam WildFire Guardian is an integrated solution, combining video surveillance system, server platform system and specialized software, geographic information system (GIS), security tools and data transmission channels into a single solution.

Key functionalities

  • automated fire detection at an early stage
  • link of camera view with information on interactive map
  • fire location (coordinates, azimuth) and fire area
  • automatic fire alarm
  • keeping a fire ticket, where tasks are formulated and monitored
  • control over fire-fighting resources & equipment
  • reporting

WildFire Guardian project is aimed to save considerable money and to prevent forests from destruction by fire
