The Modules are: Tower based environment monitoring and fire detection system, Mobile command control unit and Static and dynamic decision support system. The Tower based environment monitoring and fire detection system address the Fire Department by hot information. The Static and dynamic decision support system is based on robot reconnaissance aircraft (UAV-RRA)- dynamic parts; and the GIS - static parts. The data supplied by the robot reconnaissance aircraft is combined with the GIS based fuel model and other information to predict the fire activity. The environment monitoring and fire detection system and the Dynamic part (UAV-RRA) of Decision support system based on remote sensing.
