The FIREBird system provides 360‐degree wildfire detection by using a combination of wildfire‐specific thermal sensors, optical imaging, and advanced computer algorithms.

Unmanned, autonomous operation ensures fast wildfire detection and notification without the need for a full‐time staff to monitor the system.

Wildfire Detection with FIREBird

  • Continuous, 360 degree, monitoring of the surrounding area is provided by 14 wildfire-specific thermal detectors and optical cameras.
  • Fires as small as 3 feet by 3 feet can be detected as far as 400 feet from a FIREBird device
  • Fires as small as 5 feet by 5 feet can be detected up 900 feet. Larger fires can be detected even further away.
  • Multiple advanced neural‐network algorithms provide local determination of abnormal heat and fire events. These algorithms also minimize the likelihood of false or missed detections.

Comprehensive Fire Monitoring

  • Cameras capture and transmit images of the surrounding area when a fire is detected. These images provide useful information for firefighters and create documentation to assist in determining the source of ignition.
  • A built-in high accuracy weather station measures wind speed, wind direction, temperature and humidity; vital information for fire fighters when assessing the fire event.
  • Continuous communication is ensured by built-in cellular and optional satellite radios.
  • Days of power backup are provided by a built-in, fire resistant battery.
