1 December 1991 Firefly system concept
Author Affiliations +
The Firefly project has developed and implemented an infrared (IR) remote sensing prototype system based on the concept presented. The Firefly system produces image through smoke that will provide near real-time wildland fire information for fire management and suppression. The prototype will be tested through the 1991 fire season. Results of the testing will be incorporated into the final system design for operational use at the end of 1992.
