On November 19, in the village of Danevka, Kozeletsky district, Chernihiv region, rescuers conducted aerial monitoring with the aim of comprehensively studying and identifying sources of peat burning.

The work was carried out using an unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with thermal imaging equipment. The reconnaissance was attended by: the company Drone.UA, employees of the Scientific Center for Aerospace Research of the Earth, as well as employees of the research center for innovative technologies UkrNDICZ. p>

The Drone.UA unmanned platform with thermal imaging equipment and a high-resolution video camera is used to conduct quick reconnaissance of fires to ensure effective extinguishing. At individual fire sites, temperature measurements were taken using ground-based thermal imaging in the far infrared range, and in parallel, the same temperature was filmed and measured by an unmanned aerial vehicle.

During the work process, underground fires with temperatures ranging from 55 to 200 degrees on the surface of the earth were identified. The total area where unmanned monitoring was carried out was 70 hectares.

During the reconnaissance process, the researchers pointed out to fire service workers the areas where the peat needed to be extinguished first.

The results showed that the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle helps fire service workers identify smoldering peat areas, while at the same time, the results of reconnaissance demonstrate objective information about the total area of peat burning.
