During the 6th and 7th of June, the final FIRE-RS demo took place in Toulouse, hosted by the LAAS partner. This demo, contrary to the previous one, was focused on engaging the academic community working and developing UAV systems. To this effect the demo was made part of the 6th Drone Garden Workshop and served to dive into the technical details of each partners developments as well as presenting the results from demos 1 & 2

During the past Thursday, 23rd of May, the LSTS hosted the second FIRE-RS field demonstration. This demonstration was aimed at validating the UAV segment of the FIRE-RS fire monitoring tool as well as the interaction between the UAV systems, the LSTS's Neptus command & control software and the fire mapping & propagation algorithms from LAAS. The demonstration was attended by a series of possible stakeholders from different institutions: Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente; Bombeiros Sapadores CM V.N. Gaia; Bombeiros Voluntários Leixões; Curso de Engenharia de Protecção Civil; Comando Distrital de Operações de Socorros do Porto and CCDR-N. This live demo was the culmination of a series of field tests carried out during the entire week at the LIPA airstrip.

Demonstration 1 of the Fire-RS Project took place on the 23th of April (at the University of Vigo) and on the 24th of April (at Seganosa). We joined in with our UAVs to test the satellite link communications - no flights were intended, just the UAV with the HumSAT terminal installed to communicate with the satellite.

LSTS is a partner of the SUDOE FIRE-RS (acronym for wildFIRE Remote Sensing) project, which aims to explore the new technologies to aid the emergency agencies on the detection and management of wildfires.
We are now entering the final stage of the project and preparing the final demonstrations. Next week the first demonstration of the project will take place at Vigo.

The Doris project objective is to develop a modular autonomous surface vehicle (ASV), capable to sample the sea surface micro-layer (SML) and perform analysis of surfactant films and the biological communities residing within the micro-layer.

Following the kick-off meeting last July, the members of the DORIS project convened at FCUP for a progress report.

On March 11, 2019, was held the final workshop of the MARINFO project, which began in January 2016. The location of the final MARINFO workshop was the cruise terminal at the port of Leixões. Most speakers and present spend much of their time at sea or study marine processes and ecosystems so having the Atlantic Ocean as a background could not be more appropriate.

In this workshop, the various partners involved (CIIMAR, CIBIO and LSTS) presented the results of the project and there was also the intervention of 3 invited speakers: Michael Elliott of the University of Hull (UK) and Andrea Munafò of the National Oceanography Center (UK).
