Description

The nowadays worldwide wildfire context is defined by extreme fire behaviour characterized by rapid fire spread, intense burning, long-range fire spotting and unpredictable shifts. Extreme wildfire events have an extraordinary socio-economic impact in terms of both loss of human life and economic damage. The main problems that faced firefighters operators are: lack of reliable early-time fire detection tools; unpredictability of fire ignition and unpredictable behavior of extreme events. The Italian company has developed a software solution contributing to the reduction of environment and economic damages caused by forest fires. The solution is an end-to-end Decision Support System (DSS) , that aims to support actions in the three main phases of fire management: 
1. forest fire prevention and mitigation,
2. event management and
3. post-fire recovery.

The solution assures, through satellite images, in-situ ancillary data and weather numerical predictions, timely and reliable fire forecast information. The main target market are public administrations responsible for fire monitoring, prevention, management and damage mitigation; privates as insurance companies and financial entities are also potential customers.

The Italian company is interested in bein involved as a partner or as a supplier, and finding a potential consortium that could include from public administrations to private companies, involved in fire monitoring, prevention, management and damage mitigation, interested in submitting a proposal under the mentioned call, priority area 1, Increasing climate ambition: cross-sectoral challenges.
Company has recently received funding for also developing feasibility study outside EU (Australia target country), and would be interested in both research collaboration (as a partner in projects proposals), or technical collaborations (as a supplier).
