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.
