      Reduction of false alarm rate in automatic forest fire infrared surveillance systems Reduction of false alarm rate in automatic forest fire infrared surveillance systems Briz, S; de Castro, A.J; Aranda, J.M; Meléndez, J; López, F One of the main problems related to infrared remote sensing of forest fires by automatic systems concerns .   A system for airborne detection of fires and transmission of fire location and characteristic data to the system ground station. The system includes an airborne pod and an associated ground station. The pod uses a passive infrared (IR) scanning system which employs a rotating and nutating mirror within an air slipstream driven propeller/spinner.   "Study title: The evaluation of an airborne infrared mapper as a tool for detecting and measuring fires." Prepared for Dept. of Defense, Office of Civil Defense, under contract OCD-OS, and Dept. of Defense, Advanced Research Projects Agency, ARPA order no. , program code no. A wildfire, wildland fire or rural fire is an uncontrolled fire in an area of combustible vegetation occurring in rural areas. Depending on the type of vegetation present, a wildfire can also be classified more specifically as a brush fire, bushfire (in Australia), desert fire, forest fire, grass fire, hill fire, peat fire, vegetation fire, or veld fire.

fire and by: By deploying a network of tower-mounted, optical camera sensing systems using an advanced algorithm for automated, early sensing of smoke or fire. For decades detection and monitoring of forest and other wildland fires has relied heavily on aircraft (and satellites).

Technical advances and improved affordability of both sensors and sensor platforms promise to revolutionize the way aircraft detect, monitor and help suppress wildfires. Sensor systems like hyperspectral cameras, image intensifiers and thermal cameras that have Cited by: Abstract: Forest fires cause many environmental disasters, creating economical and ecological damage as well as endangering people's lives.

Heightened interest in automatic surveillance and early forest-fire detection has taken precedence over traditional human surveillance because the latter's subjectivity affects detection reliability, which is the main issue for forest-fire.

Abstract: This paper describes an scheme for automatic forest surveillance. A complete system for forest fire detection is firstly presented although we focus on infrared image processing.

The proposed scheme based on infrared image processing performs early detection of any fire threat. General composition of the lidar station for forest-fire surveillance: laser source 1, light gathering optics 2, optical filter 3, photodetector 4, diaphragm 5, analog-to-digital converter 6.

We will not attempt to summarize it all here. Forest Fire Surveillance System (FFSS) is a South Korean system. The surveillance is done by sensor network to observe illumination, temperature and humidity. These readings go into a database to make a daily calculation and comparison in order to evaluate the hazards.

One of the main problems related to infrared remote sensing of forest fires by automatic systems concerns the rejection of false alarms.

The study of the infrared spectral radiance emitted by a biomass fire has been used to define spectral algorithms that permit to separate fires from other sources considered as false by: Numerous thermal airborne scanners (e.g., Daedalus [– μm, USA], TIMS [– μm, USA], Aries [France], Digital thermal Linescanner [8–14 μm, UK], TABI [8–12 μm, Canada], OMIS1 1 [– μm, China]) and several other thermal scanners are operating in different countries with many applications, such as coal, forest.

Seeing Through Forest Fire Smoke and Fire Fighting with Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Cameras Forest fires are a common problem in the western part of the United States for fire fighters.

Such fires generate a large volume of aerosols, typically appearing as light, opaque smoke that obscures vision to large areas of terrain. Fire fighting methods being displayed in Columbia, Missouri. Young college girls drive in a car.
