Detecting Forest Fires Using Thermal Imagery
Forest fires are devastating disasters that can have serious environmental and economic consequences. Every year, the evacuation of populations, the loss of equipment and the pollution generated represent a challenge for fire departments and public administrations.
In the fight against forest fires, thermography represents a major ally. Thanks to a specialized camera and a thermal imaging system, it can detect, with unequalled precision and efficiency, areas where fires are still burning on the ground.
Inspro works in collaboration with field crews, government bodies and fire department firefighters to provide accurate images of areas where there is a risk of forest fires reigniting.
Detection of At-Risk Areas by Helicopter and Drone
Our team of thermography experts uses advanced, state-of-the-art thermal imaging cameras. The cameras are able to detect temperature variations in the ground more than a month after a fire. By detecting anomalies early, prevention teams on the ground can intervene sooner and prevent new fires from breaking out.
Our qualified operators can carry out thermography by helicopter and drone. They fly over affected areas to visualize hot spots (such as smoldering fires, which are difficult to detect because they don’t produce flames) and identify where ground fires are still raging.
