Early bushfire detection for Southern Cross Forests

Pano AI has announced a pilot program that brings its artificial intelligence solution to detect and pinpoint bushfires in the early stages to Southern Cross Forests’ softwood forests in New South Wales, two years after the record-breaking Black Summer bushfires burned more than 5.5 million hectares in NSW alone.

Southern Cross Forests (SCF) will deploy Pano Rapid Detect, Pano’s integrated hardware, software and AI system, to gain greater situational awareness to aid in its response to bushfires. Pano Rapid Detect continuously monitors areas of high fire risk using ultra-high-definition cameras that rotate 360° every minute and provide complete panoramic visibility.

By merging this rich camera data with emergency calls and other available data feeds, Pano AI’s artificial intelligence produces a real-time picture of threats and delivers rapid, actionable intelligence to fire services.

Pano AI, in partnership with local governments and utility companies, has successfully deployed its early fire detection and notification system across high-risk fire zones in four US states. During the 2021 US fire season, Pano Rapid Detect identified, confirmed and notified customers of more than 100 fires in these states.
