What is FUEGO?

Mission Statement

Using modern digital technology, FUEGO will utilize platforms at various altitudes to detect wildland fires very early, measure wildland fires with high precision and specificity, and then feed such results into modern fire simulation programs. Such a system, when proved out, will enable the data to be used and disseminated by fire incident commanders and emergency operations staff.  We intend that such a modern system will be tested and evolve to become the gold standard of modern, digitally enhanced fire-fighting.
