The projectt FIREMENTOR is a precursor action specifying fundamental components of the integrated FIREHUB system of the BEYOND Centre of Excellence.
The project developed a fire fighting training system assisting the fire fighters to effectively and timely react in cases of wildfires, in support to the optimization of firefighting operations on the site, and the evacuation of cities in cases of peri-urban fires. The research team of NOA contributed in the integration of satellite Earth Observation techniques for enhancing the system's knowledge, and the creation of proper information layers. It developed image processing techniques which effectively combined very high resolution data from airborne cameras and sensors with satellite data, for the vertical assessment of forest biomass parameters. It also delivered an innovative methodology for the update and accurate assessment of forest biomass parameters at regional and national level. To be noted that the accurate knowledge of forest biomass is a unique input for assessing the fires' behavior over Greece's forest ecosystems.
The research outcomes have been presented in several publications.
