The aim of this initiative is to have an automated surveillance system that can detect forest fires during the day or during the night through the analysis carried out by innovative software that is new in Spain. The system allows visual monitoring at the remote outposts located in the fire coordination centres of the Government of Aragon. It also allows a fire to be monitored and assists in the fire extinguishing tasks, as well as aid in its research and analysis.
