How does Dryad’s Silvanet wildfire detection system work?

Dryad’s Silvanet detects wildfires during their smoldering phase using highly precise gas

sensors that can detect hydrogen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other gasses to a

parts-per-million (PPM) accuracy.

Simply put, if ocular systems such as satellites, drones and CCTV cameras can be said to ‘see’ fires, then Dryad’s Silvanet can be said to ‘smell’ them. Furthermore, our Silvanet sensors improve over time. Our engineers continue to train the sensors’ embedded artificial intelligence to become more accurate at detecting real fires. Our customers send us samples from various forest environments around the world so that our AI

becomes more familiar with different forest ‘smells’. This greatly minimizes the risk of false positive triggers.
