The intrinsic innovation of I-SEE’s aerial scientific observation lies in the use of light and cheap aerial means (airplanes and UAVs). This is possible thanks to the recent miniaturization of the most modern aerial sensors, without compromising their performance. These innovative tools respond to the need for more accurate, faster and efficient management of phases A (prevention), B (fire detection and massive attacks) and C (forest fire management), by collecting, processing and analyzing aerial data with the latest in advanced technology, such as Big Data, augmented reality and artificial intelligence.
KrattWorks offers a system that gives rapid situational awareness to firefighters, rescuers and police officers. We use the artificial vision installed on the drones in order to detect the fire line or missing persons. The KrattWorks drone locates the fire line without human intervention and shares the collected data instantly with multiple users. The mobile network connectivity on board the drone gives it unlimited range and allows it to send the collected information to a server from where it is instantly exported to the platform it is already using.

Lluvia Sólida is a potassium-based granular powder. This powder is also degradable, non-soluble and non-toxic, which, when in contact with water, expands and can adsorb up to 400 times its weight in water, and can act as a fire-breaking stream. Due to its characteristics and proven experience, it is foreseen that, by dropping it from the air, it would achieve the objective of extinguishing fires, as an alternative to existing methods. This product can be used to rehabilitate damaged areas, increasing the survival rate of reforested trees by 60%.

Secalflor SUR manufactures and distributes planting panels composed of 100% natural raw materials: mineral salts, starches and cellulose fibres. These panels favour the rooting and growth of plants and vegetation in extreme weather conditions and in very deteriorated soils, among other causes due to fires. The components of the panels help to keep the soil moist, making it more fertile thanks to the mineral salts incorporated in the manufacturing process and generating more biomass.

Scodev is capable of adapting non-amphibious aircraft so that they can load water in mid-flight and unload it over areas affected by forest fires. This system makes it possible to load tankers over all types of water surfaces, whether sea, rivers, lakes or canals, flying over them at an altitude of 10 to 15 meters. The water discharge rate of non-amphibious aircraft is increased from 1 to 5 discharges per hour and, in addition, the extinguishing efficiency over the affected area is 8 times higher than average, which prevents forest fires from becoming uncontrollable.

Innovative solution as an alternative to traditional forest firefighting: smoke is filtered from the forest fire, then pressurised and the gases are used to mitigate the fire, the lack of oxygen in the gases reduces combustion. It creates a more effective and resilient extinguishing system especially where water is scarce in vulnerable landscapes. It is a less physically demanding and longer lasting tool.
