A series of experiments including different sets of parameters and varying conditions were conducted by the Military Academy ASPires team with the support of 10 employees from the Armed Forces on the 5th and 17th of October 2018 in the Military Academy, Skopje, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
By simulation of fire during different time periods in the day, under different weather conditions and other accompanying parameters, facilitated and secured by firefighting mechanisms provided by Armed Forces employees, the Military Academy, Skopje team has been able to generate significant body of data relevant for the successful implementation of the ASPires project.
The experiments have resulted with sets of data that are currently being processed and used for theoretical and practical assessment of the hypotheses made earlier by the research team, leading up to invaluable conclusions and guidelines for the on-site functionality of the ASPires system on the territory of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia , the partners in the ASPires project and beyond.
Further testing and experiments have also been envisioned upon the installation of the equipment to reflect the actual environment of the national parks where the equipment will be used. This experiments will facilitate factoring in all relevant elements, such as vegetation typical for the area, different physical obstacles, weather conditions, etc.
In the experiments conducted by the Military Academy, Skopje, software and hardware tools were used to demonstrate the functionality of the ASPires platform. The used sensors and the corresponding network equipment are Controller Waspmote Plug & Sense SE-PRO 868, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Gas Sensor [Calibrated] ,Temperature, Humidity and Pressure Sensor Probe, Drone Matrice 600 PRO, Carbon Monoxide (CO) Gas sensor probe for high concentrations (calibrated), Meshlium 4G AP 868 EU модел M4G -868- EU, Camera for drone Zenmuse X5.
