Winner of the 2019 Climate Change Business Journal Achievement Award for Information Technology: Wildfire Protection

Lake Forest, CA – January 2020, Climate Change Business Journal presented HANA Resources the CCBJ Business Achievement Award for outstanding business performance and achievements in the climate change industry for Information Technology: Wildfire Protection.

HANA Resources received the coveted CCBJ award for its development of the Situation Awareness Fire Expectancy Regression (SAFER) program. SAFER is a predictive deep neural network that integrates stateful computational graphing solutions with hyper-spectral imaging data-sets to produce a model that forecasts potential fires and fire zones.

This innovative idea was created to mitigate and reduce threats to human life, personal property, infrastructure, and damage to the natural resources and watersheds of California by a creating predictive modeling system that will predict fire hazards in near real time. SAFER gives firefighters a temporal edge against possible pending fires, thus allowing additional resources and solutions to be pre-deployed for monitoring and early mitigation.

Auxiliary features of SAFER, such as short-wave infrared (SWIR) imagery via drone survey, allow for prediction of fire routes and fire spread before a wildfire can occur. Predictive advantages from these features allow for better “reading” of the fire and bolster more comprehensive firefighting tactics during wildfire operations. More…
