Ahmed Refaat Ragab, Mohammad Sadeq Ale Isaac, Marco A. Luna, Pablo Flores Peña


In Europe, fire represents an important issue for a lot of researchers due to economic losses, environmental disasters, and human death. In the last decade, the European parliament sheds light upon this problem by dealing with the community project” Forest Focus”. Thus, researchers and scientific research departments of European companies begin to work on solving and creating different techniques to deal with such a problem, these research centers found that the most attractive and accurate way of solving such a problem was using an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). In this paper, the research center at Drone Hopper Company analysis the deficiencies for forest fire fighting systems, in order to start designing its new prototype of a special drone named WILD HOPPER, solving all the shortcomings of similar systems. This paper is the first of a group of research papers that will take place during designing and producing our WILD-HOPPER system.
