SILVANUS – Integrated Technological and Information Platform for wildfire Management

SILVANUS envisages to deliver an environmentally sustainable and climate resilient forest management platform through innovative capabilities to prevent and combat against the ignition and spread of forest fires. The platform will cater to the demands of efficient resource utilisation and provide protection against threats of wildfires encountered globally. The project will establish synergies between (i) environmental; (ii) technology and (iii) social science experts for enhancing the ability of regional and national authorities to monitor forest resources, evaluate biodiversity, generate more accurate fire risk indicators and promote safety regulations among citizens through awareness campaigns. The novelty of SILVANUS lies in the development and integration of advanced semantic technologies to systematically formalise the knowledge of forest administration and resource utilisation. Additionally, the
platform will integrate a big-data processing framework capable of analysing heterogeneous data sources including earth observation resources, climate models and weather data, continuous on-board computation of multi-spectral video streams. Also, the project integrates a series of sensor and actuator technologies using innovative wireless communication infrastructure through the coordination of aerial vehicles and ground robots.
The technological platform will be complemented with the integration of resilience models, and the results of environmental and ecological studies carried out for the assessment of fire risk indicators based on continuous surveys of forest regions. The surveys are designed to take into consideration the expertise and experience of frontline fire fighter organisations who collectively provide support for 47,504×104 sq. meters of forest area within Europe and across international communities. The project innovation will be validated through 11 pilot demonstrations across Europe and internationally using a two sprint cycle

Duration
42 months from 01/10/2021 to 31/03/2025

General objectives

Preventing and fighting extreme wildfires with the integration and demonstration of innovative means

CMCC role

Partner – Beneficiary

Role in the project

  •  WP1: CMCC will contribute to the overall project management and will participate in the general assembly meetings organised by administrator and scientific coordinator (PEG/Z&P).
  •  WP2: CMCC will lead the activity on climate sensitive forest models
  • WP4: CMCC will coordinate the work package activities and will lead the development of predictive climate conditions and process weather data obtained from EO repositories
  •  WP5: CMCC will contribute to the big-data framework, semantic information fusion and realtime response coordination.
  •  WP8: CMCC will actively participate in the integration activities of the project results from WP2, WP4 and WP5.
  •  WP9: CMCC will collaborate with Italian pilots organized by ASSET and PNRT in demonstrating Phase A, B and C scenarios.
  •  WP10: CMCC will actively exploit the project outcomes in strengthening their internal knowledge competencies.

Activities

SILVANUS activities can be categorized in 3 main phases: A) Prevention and Preparedness, B) Detection and Response, C) Restoration and Adaptation.

The activities of the project are clustered into 10 work packages for addressing all the phases A, B and C of the project:

  1. Project coordination
  2. Environmentally sustainable, resilient forest models and assessment framework
  3. Culture of deterrence and prevention against wildfires based on sustainable forest management services
  4. Advanced detection capabilities for early stage detection of wildfires
  5. Response coordination to contain the spread of wildfire
  6. Enhanced resilience programme for forest management through restoration and adaptation
  7. Policy recommendations on environmental sustainability and forest restoration
  8. Platform design specification, interfaces and integration
  9. Large-scale demonstration activities of project outcomes
  10. Dissemination and exploitation

Expected results

The overarching objective of the project is to design, implement and validate an integrated technological and information platform providing technological and decision-making support in preparedness, response and recovery phase of wildfire management cycle and increasing the human, environment and economy resilience to wildfires. The technical and scientific innovation will develop novel methodologies in monitoring and analysing ecological growth of natural resources to complement the analysis of biodiversity models. The environmental monitoring framework developed within SILVANUS will be supplemented with cutting-edge technologies for the early-stage detection and response coordination of wildfire. Finally, the SILVANUS platform will offer support for rehabilitation, restoration, and adaptation of natural forest growth.
