Last summer we installed a Sen-eye, coupled with a HD camera, on an existing tower in one of the national parks here in Belgium. After a brief training of the environment, our Sen-eye was ready to monitor the surroundings for (wild)fires.
Luckily there weren't any wildfires that summer, but we did do a test of the setup and, together with the national park and local fire brigade, set fire to a 1m x 1m barrel and thus created a controlled, small fire.
Distance: 2,2 km
Useless to say that both we and the national park were satisfied by the result. A small fire at 2,2 km was detected within seconds by our Sen-Eye and, in real-life situations, would give fire brigades a big advantage in fighting the fire in an early stage and thus preventing damage to wildlife, vegetation and limitating the potential danger for fire fighters.
