Short summary
This paper presents the Forest Fire Finder (FFF) System, a long range forest fire detection system. It works by detecting a smoke column above the horizon, by analysing the light that goes through it. In the article, you will find a technical description and an analysis of the behaviour of 13 of these devices, which were installed in a Portuguese national park. We conclude that the deployed FFF network managed to detect more that 200 fires, proving the system to be effective in fire detection.
