Timely and reliable information
in firefighting

Automatic and adaptive detection for fire ignitions allow identifying smoke columns, hot spots or blazes, in day and nighttime, under harsh weather like mist or fog. Remote monitoring and real-time information based on georeferenced video streaming give firefighting task forces immediate notifications and precise incident locations.


A real-time surveillance system offers a suite of integrated possibilities, where Internet of Things (IoT) meets Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), meets Augmented Analytics (AA), meets Artificial Intelligence (AI), that lets firefighting task forces seamlessly manage and battle multiple conflagrations, with efficient allocation of resources.

With 10+ years of thorough R&D and a pilot operating on site, the demand for the system boosts soon after the 2017 most destructive fires in Portugal’s history, devastating the center and north regions of the country. The dead toll rose to more than 120 people and more than 1 Million acres of land were consumed by the blazes also causing billions of euros in property damages. Everything went wrong, with government, local governments, civil protection authorities, firefighters, police, telecoms and utilities blaming each other for the mess and the casualties.


However, in the middle of all that turmoil and burned territory there was a part of land where things were running smoothly, efficiently and in an organized manner and starting fires did not upsurge: the only share of land covered by CICLOPE. From then on, all local governments, private tenants and firefighting task force authorities in the country are on the verge of installing the CICLOPE system in their territories.


Today, CICLOPE is experiencing an increasing demand predicting to triple the number of hectares of protected forests in the next two years.
