Thousands of hectares around the globe destroyed by forest fires every year causing tragic loss of houses, properties, lives, fauna and flora. Forest fires are a great menace to ecologically healthy grown forests and protection of the environment. This problem has been part of Telelink Infra Services research and development effort, culminating in the creation of a dedicated solution. Combining advanced electro-optical, and thermal sensors and machine learning with enhanced smoke and fire detection algorithms, the early forest fire detection system ‘PrevenTIS’ proactively scans the area of interest providing automated 24/7 monitoring and fire identification. By installing ‘PrevenTIS’ on fire lookout towers and other tall structures, scanning networks are developed covering large areas. The early forest fire detection provides crucial information needed for well-informed firefighting decision-making. The system is effectively used by the Forest Services across Bulgaria and abroad and it is unparalleled in its ability to provide real-time surveillance and rapid detection of wildfires in forest areas.
