HISPASAT, the Spanish operator and satellite solutions and services provider of the Red Eléctrica Group, has reached an agreement with Pyro, a specialist in forest sensor technology, to jointly market a comprehensive early fire prevention and detection system via satellites which uses a system of sensors connected through the IoT (Internet of Things).
Specifically, this proposal by HISPASAT and Pyro is based on automating monitoring in forest areas. The solution jointly analyzes the information collected continuously through sensors and weather forecasts while providing relevant information about the forest’s status available to locals and organizations in real time. The early fire detection system – which boasts no false alarms unlike other detection systems – also features ongoing fire monitoring, even at night, which also enable users to predict how the fire will evolve in adjacent forest areas
