Welcome to ASPires

Forest fires present one of the main risks for the nature and protected forest areas. Detection the fire in early phase remains one of the biggest challenges for researchers and institutions in Crisis Management Systems in Europe.

The project is developing a novel model of an information system for early detection, monitoring and prediction of forest fires in areas of particular importance, providing high fire danger forecast and prediction.

The goal of the project is to develop advanced concepts for early detection systems of forest fires that integrate sensor networks and mobile (drone) technologies for data collection and acquisition of those data at existing Crisis Management Information Systems (CMIS).

Thank you for your interest

ASPires team


The project will be presented at the 14th ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CSECS CONFERENCE.

"All conference papers are refereed and the best papers are published in the Computer Science Education & Computer Science Research Journal: ISSN 1313-8624. We welcome professional extended abstracts and full papers. This is a refereed conference. Papers in a wide range of Computer Science research areas ranging from Software Engineering to Information Systems Security are considered for presentation and publication in our proceedings. Computer Science Education topics range from introduction and evaluation of computing programs, curricula, and online courses, to syllabus, laboratories, teaching, and pedagogy. Awards will be given for the Best Student Paper and the Best Mentor."

RETTmobile Exhibition 2018

16th International Conference "Challenges in Higher Education and Research in 21-st Centory"

The ASPires project will be presented on the conference "Challenge in Higher Education and Research in 21-st Centory" in Sozopol, Bulgaria on the 29.05 - 01.06 2018.

Fire exercise with the local Fire Brigades in August 2018

A close collaboration with the fire brigades has been established and the ASPires team were invited by the local fire brigade in Fulda to participate on a fire exercise in the forest and exchange experience with the municipal fire brigades, which will take place in August 2018. Within the fire exercise, representatives of the Ministries of Hessen will be invited and some potential fruitful dialogs and possible cooperation are intended.
