General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

We need to be able to track the spread of wild fire (or similar) to see whether there is a risk of this posing a threat to our staff, operations, or assets and infrastructure.

6

Thematic information requirements

3. Obtain detailed vegetation information,       9. Obtain detailed imagery of assets,      14. Obtain detailed imagery of the surface,

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

The health, safety and welfare of operational staff is critical.  As is the safe operation of our assets. 

We must ensure that we manage fire events to the best of our ability in order to reduce the damage to and resulting from our operations.

8

What do you currently do to address this challenge?/ How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Online imagery, ground survey teams

9

What kind of solution do you envisage could address this challenge?

Fires and their extent can be detected in near-real time with satellite instruments that sense heat. Changes can be monitored over short periods of time and fire maps can be generated within few hours to provide an overview of affected areas and aid more

10

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need? – are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

EO could be a useful complimentary technology
