Automated twenty-four-hour IR TV remote system for landscape fires detection and ecological monitoring


   For twenty-four-hour remote fire monitoring of the territories including massifs.
   Provides automation of inflammations control and location and, correspondingly, taking measures at the
   early stage of inflammations, minimization of fire loses.
   The system includes meteorological, radiation and other sensors to carry out ecological monitoring of

  The system provides the following ways of fireplaces detection

  IR- channel:

• open or partial screened combustion areas detection
• detection of screened combustion areas by heat upward flows over the fire placeо
• obtaining of heat fields maps within different periods of time to make prognosis

TV- channel:

  • fire detection by smoky phase of combustion
  • visual analysis of the directions of interest
IR-ТV – system structure

Fire monitoring automated system includes:
  • IR-TV- automated modules of detection installed on 30-40 meter fire towers (the distance between the towers makes 10-15 km.)
  • Digital information receiving- transmitting wireless net when transmitting information by radio channel or using GSM communication devices
  • receiving- transmitting and data processing central station – PCS
IR-TV system is designed in corporation with microprocessor and computer equipment. It is administrated by corresponding programs in automatic mode. Prognosis is carried out at receiving transmitting and data processing central station – PCS. It displays on-line information from meteorological and ecological sensors. It makes a decision on giving alarm signaling.

IR-TV system operates in cyclic or continuous mode (program assigned with PCS).
