FireWatch is a terrestrial, digital, remote surveillance system capable of observing wooded regions over a large area, larger than traditional bushfire detection systems.

FireWatch, IQ Wireless and the German Aerospace Institute (DLR) were recently awarded the exceptional honour of being inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame in the United States, for technology that has had a significant impact on human-life on earth.

The FireWatch system will analyse, evaluate, link and store the collective data, classifying the incoming data in multiple ways, connected to a central station. In the event of a recognised source of fire, it automatically sends out an alarm.
