    Coordinate with NASA and the private sector to stay current on the latest airborne remote sensing instruments and related technologies of interest to NIROPS. Manage and maintain the online infrared ordering system used by wildland fire incidents to request NIROPS support. Provide technical support for NIROPS operations.   Persistent surveillance and collection of airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information is critical in today's warfare against terrorism. High resolution imagery in visible and infrared bands provides valuable detection capabilities based on target shapes and temperatures. However, the spectral resolution provided by a hyperspectral imager adds a .

    The Fine Fuel Moisture Code (FFMC) is a component of the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index System (Canadian Forestry Service ). The literature is rich with descriptors of the Canadian Fire Weather Index and the moisture codes. We will not attempt to summarize it all here. Forest Fire Surveillance System (FFSS) is a South Korean system. The surveillance is done by sensor network to observe illumination, temperature and humidity. These readings go into a database to make a daily calculation and comparison in order to evaluate the hazards. FireWxNet is a system target to study the forest fire behaviour not : Ahmad Aa Alkhatib.

Martin, and John Warren, "A Feasibility Study: Forest Fire Advanced System Technology (FFAST)", JPL Publication , Mobile Communications Satellite Incident. One of the main problems related to infrared remote sensing of forest fires by automatic systems concerns the rejection of false alarms. The study of the infrared spectral radiance emitted by a biomass fire has been used to define spectral algorithms that permit to separate fires from other sources considered as false by:

Introduction Airborne systems are used in a wide range of scenarios, flying at low and high altitudes and speeds; for fire detection and prevention scenarios and with a broad selection of sensors on board.

Madden, Forrest H. Performance requirements for airborne infrared forest fire surveillance equipment. Research Note INT-RN Ogden, UT: USDA Forest Service, Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station.

7 p. development of airborne electronic fire surveillance systems led to a fire mapping system which became operational in the USDA Forest Ser-vice's Division of Fire Control in The unique bispectral IR fire detection system, developed under his leadership, was success-fully tested in and will become operational within the Forest Service in File Size: 7MB.

Systems Evolution. All Forest Service infrared systems for large area fire mapping prior to Phoenix have been analog systems, relying on analog electronics to shape, filter, amplify, and process the incoming Size: KB. A system concept is described for a pushbroom airborne optical fire detection instrument operating in the visible and near-infrared spectral regions.

In the design concept, several detection modules are used simultaneously, each having a camera lens, beam splitter, spectral filters, silicon linear array, InGaAs linear array, and signal processing.

Calculations indicate. Aerial Surveillance Airborne Operations assists government agencies and civilian organizations with aerial surveillance missions.

We have the specialized equipment and flight crew capabilities to perform high quality aerial surveillance and reconnaissance services in any region of the world from urban locales to remote, difficult to reach terrains.

Publisher: Ogden, Utah: U.S Author: Forrest H. Madden. Similarly, new airborne sensor platforms, particularly small, unmanned aircraft or drones, are enabling new applications for airborne fire sensing.

In this review we outline the state of the art in direct, semi-automated and automated fire detection from both manned and unmanned aerial by: Extensive IR spatial images and spectral signatures were gathered from an active large brush and forest fire by the Flying Infrared Signatures Technology Aircraft of the U.S.

Air Force Geophysics Laboratory. Infrared images give the apparent temperatures of actively burning and burned over regions and aid in identifying the type and intensity of the fire. FIG. 8 is a functional system block diagram of the pod and ground station. FIG. 9 is layout of the system elements of the mobile ground station.

For decades detection and monitoring of forest and other wildland fires has relied heavily on aircraft (and satellites). Technical advances and improved affordability of both sensors and sensor platforms promise to revolutionize the way aircraft detect, monitor and help suppress wildfires.

Sensor systems like hyperspectral cameras, image intensifiers and thermal cameras that have Cited by: Abstract: Forest fires cause many environmental disasters, creating economical and ecological damage as well as endangering people's lives. Heightened interest in automatic surveillance and early forest-fire detection has taken precedence over traditional human surveillance because the latter's subjectivity affects detection reliability, which is the main issue for forest-fire.

Abstract: This paper describes an scheme for automatic forest surveillance. A complete system for forest fire detection is firstly presented although we focus on infrared image processing. The proposed scheme based on infrared image processing performs early detection of any fire threat.
