Active Eco-Wildfire Management System

The solution is a method for wildfire hazard analyses and forest fuel management planning. Forest fuels management implies a significant allocation of human and financial resources, so their planning should aim to optimize the effects on change of fire behavior due to the implementation of management measures. The proposed methodology takes advantage of the natural capacity of Mediterranean ecosystems to be resilient to fire.

Developed by GIFF Lda
Innovative method to planning and execution of Strategic Forest Fuel Management and Prescribed Burning techniques in forests to reduce risk of wildfire. Test

TRL8. System incorporated in comercial design
System complete and qualified. Technology has been proven to work in its final form and under expected conditions. In almost all cases, this TRL represents the end of true system development. Examples include developmental test and evaluation of the system in its intended weapon system to determine if it meets design specifications. Currently this planning methodology was applied in some areas in Portugal, in production forests and conservation areas protection. Some of the planned management proposals were carried out, and there is some information about the performance in operational environments. However wasn’t made a monitoring and consistent evaluation of the post-planning and implementation phase. Next works require the collection and evaluation of data relating to operational effects on the spread of fire and suppression actions in real fire conditions.

See more information about this level and the TRL and SRL levels.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

The proposed approach is based on studying fire patterns and fire regime in the areas of intervention, focusing treatments in locations where the effect will be greater, allowing the performance of suppression means safely and with greater likelihood of success, and use techniques to maximize the effectiveness of treatments in time, such as the use of prescribed burning or change of land use.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

A seminar for dissemination of planning action among firefighting organizations is rquired for an effective implementation. The successful implementation of this methodology is also dependent of the territorial scale required for its effective implementation.

Added value
A better application of resources to treat areas with high wildfire risk, by planning best placement of treatments, to improve wildfire suppression effectiveness. The solution proves effctive to reduce the extent of the area affected by wildfires.
