A scientist Alexander Khamukhin from Tomsk Polytechnic University has patented a method to detect forest fires by sound. He suggested the use of sensors able to capture sound of the approaching fire at the distance of 3-5 km, and to give an idea about the type of fire and its area. Traditionally used fire sensors give a signal when fire is already raging in the immediate vicinity.
Wildfires can wreak havoc on human health, property and communities, so it's imperative to detect them as early as possible. That's why NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, is working on a concept for a network of space-based sensors called FireSat in collaboration with Quadra Pi R2E, San Francisco.
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Flame Detectors Market by product, Service, Industry, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2020" report to their offering.
Smoke detectors are everywhere, but still thousands of people die in fires annually. Fire gas detectors, which detect carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide, identify fires at an early stage. Thanks to a new measurement principle developed by Fraunhofer researchers, these costly sensors will soon be inexpensive and ready for the mass market.
During the next three years, researchers at Case Western Reserve University will team with NASA Glenn Research Center and firefighters nationally, from Cleveland to Oregon, to design and test sensors aimed at protecting firefighters from respiratory damage and illnesses.
