FTS designs complete, turn-key systems for a variety of environmental monitoring applications. Our systems are based upon the Axiom datalogger—a key technology that deliver rugged reliability in any environment, simplicity of operation, low maintenance costs, and extremely accurate data.

Fire Weather Networks , Wildfire Supression

by FTS     based in Victoria, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA)

Every year, 35 million hectares —or about 1% of the world’s forests— are lost to wildfire. Recently in North America the area burnt by wildfires has increased sharply, while regions like Southeast Asia and South America have seen a rise in the number of land-clearing fires and other escaped wildfires in equatorial forests. The extraordinary costs of fire suppression activities are matched only by the damages to property and ecosystems these fire wreak—in South America, this loss is estimated at $1.6 billion annually. In the US, damages from major fires were found to account for as much as 95% of total costs from fire. Advances have been made through the use of basic weather data from meteorological stations. In years past, fire agencies used this data to develop fire danger rating systems that helped them predict, prevent and suppress fires. How can fire management agencies improve their ability to predict, prevent and fight wildfires? By installing dedicated fire weather network.

Forest Carbon Monioring

by Ecometrica     based in London, UNITED KINGDOM

Our Ecosystem (OE) can help you with: - Quantification of initial carbon stocks - Baseline and leakage assessment - Monitoring and verification OE makes it easy to access, organize, share and obtain information from maps and other spatial data on land and ecosystems, giving you the opportunity to interact with the data in an intuitive user interface. OE is delivered as a service that does not require specialist knowledge on geographical information system (GIS) software or remote sensing data and techniques within your organization. Instead of having to look at paper maps in a report, you will be able to pan through the data and zoom in to areas of interest. In addition, it allows you to extract information from the data for areas of special interest using powerful analytical tools. Your OE application is set up so that your data is secure, and you can control who has access to it.

Carbon footprinting calculations for environmental management

by Cambridge Environmental Research Consultants (CERC)     based in Cambridge, UNITED KINGDOM

With its expertise in calculating and managing emissions data, CERC offers a range of services to assess greenhouse gas emissions, from determining the carbon footprint of a single industrial process, to compiling a greenhouse gas inventory for a whole geographical area.

CERC uses methods and emission factors laid out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Emissions from transport, industrial, heating and agricultural activities are calculated and stored using the EMIT software package.

Fire Danger Rating / Forecasting

by FTS     based in Victoria, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA)

For various reasons, including the changing global climate, wildfires are getting bigger, more destructive and more expensive. Effective, consistent and reliable detection of climate parameters is the key to preventing wildfires and managing the impact they have. Our equipment resides for decades in solitary confinement generally in very remote areas (often at the tops of mountains or deep within a national forest), constantly measuring and recording weather data. Once per hour, this data is transmitted back to government agencies who will analyze and use it to make decisions critical to the safety of the public. In the United States, FTS works closely with the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC). The center’s mission is the complex interagency coordination of wildland firefighting resources for the country. One of the resources is the network of remote automated weather stations (RAWS), the vast majority of which are supplied by FTS.
