The project aims to utilize unmanned aerial vehicles in order to detect forest fires. UAVs will be equipped with radiometric thermal cameras for measuring ground temperature. Once a fire is detected the information about the location and temperature of the fire including images of the fire will be transferred to a ground station in order to help fire crews to deal with the fire quickly and efficiently.
