Spanish Managing Director of Renaissance Consulting Agustin Arjonilla will give a presentation at UAS Event about the use of unmanned aerial systems in forest fighting management (prevention, detection, fighting and restoration).
This presentation performs an analysis of all the aspects surrounding the use of UAVs in forest fighting management (i.e. not only during the detection and fighting phases; but also during the prevention and restoration after fire ones). As far as the author knows, it is the first timethis subject has been considered in such a complete and didactic way.
First, the worldwide problem of forest fire is presented in its global magnitude. Then the author describes how do we deal with this problem and more specifically how aerial means are used nowadays. Next is described the analysis process to determine the UAS generic profile from the operational parameters and to later fit the profile in currently flying vehicles and payloads. Then a summary of the results of such analysis is provided. Finally, a brief introduction about state-of-the-art unmanned solutions such as NITROFIREX is given, with a final forecast of the future of unmanned forest fighting.
