A Korean research team has created a system that can help firefighters save lives in the event of a fire, explosion, or collapse at an internal disaster site.
InVeris Training Solutions, the leading provider of integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training systems for military, law enforcement agencies and commercial shooting ranges, today unveils SRCE™, a groundbreaking, augmented reality-based, untethered weapons training simulator.
Rainforests constitute a robust and natural solution to fight climate change. They provide water filtration and help capture carbon, thereby controlling global temperatures.
Researchers at KAUST have identified that pairing ground-based sensors with airborne drones could greatly help firefighters while battling wildfires.
Under the guidance of Curtin University, a new study has demonstrated how radar satellites can enhance the potential to detect, track, prepare for, and resist natural disasters in Australia, such as earthquakes, floods, and bushfires.
At Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) Institute of Materials Science, a research team has developed new silicon and graphene Schottky contact-based infrared radiation sensors with higher efficiency than the infrared sensors available in the market.
Researchers at Michigan State University have designed and developed a remote system for forest fire detection and alarming, which is powered by only the movement of trees in wind.
Recent devastating fires in the Amazon rain forest and the Australian bush highlight the need to detect forest fires at early stages, before they blaze out of control.
Envisage a device that has the ability to withstand even the most extreme fires so that it can automatically alert others when a firefighter becomes immobilized on the job.
During crisis situations, such as industrial chemical and gas leaks and forest fires, large area environmental monitoring might have a vital role in the mitigation efforts. Each year, thousands of lives are lost globally due to forest fires. Loss of lives and long-term health issues could also be caused due to exposure to the unmonitored emission of toxic gases in remote and industrialized regions.
