The Combustion Institute would like to make its members aware of a funding opportunity through the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The listing seeks ideas that span observation and information system technologies that:

  • Enhance capabilities of existing science instruments needed for monitoring pre-fire, active-fire, and post-fire environments.
  • Reduce mass and power of instruments for accommodation by next-generation small spacecraft and aerial platforms.
  • Enable unprecedented measurements from multiple vantage points through model-directed, coordinated observations using autonomous tasking.
  • Address computational challenges for modeling and for data acquisition, fusion, and processing in a real-time environment.
  • Facilitate machine learning and artificial intelligence to create new data products needed for wildland fire management and for management of the constellation of observing platforms.
  • Enable the seamless exchange of information between spaceborne, airborne, and in-situ assets.
