AF3 (Advanced Forest Fire Fighting- Grant Agreement n° 607276) is a 7th Framework Programme collaborative project funded by the European Commission within the theme SEC-2013.4.1-6 Preparedness for and management of large scale forest fires. Today the AF3 partners held a successful final day presentation of the project results with invited EU personnel in Brussels. Dr Martin Vachovski attended the event from Skytek to present our research, developments and results.
AF3 researched and developed solutions to improve the efficiency of current fire-fighting operations and the protection of human lives, the environment and property by developing innovative technologies to ensure the integration between existing and new systems. Moreover, AF3 contributed to increase the interoperability of fire-fighting means and to pave the way for industrialization of such solutions. To reach this objective, the AF3 project focused on innovative active and passive countermeasures, early detection and monitoring, integrated crisis management and advanced public information channels.
The project started on May 2014 and was carried out by a consortium of 20 members from 10 Countries. A range of AF3 project Webinars and presentations are on AF3 project Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpFRBvmwFg9Wyfmgu5Jyxug
