NASA ARMD Wildfire Management Assessment Request for Information (RFI)

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) invites you to respond to the Wildfire Management Assessment Request for Information (RFI)!

The purpose of this RFI is to understand the needs of the wildfire management stakeholders, so that NASA may make informed decisions regarding potential contributions to wildfire solutions.NASA has a history of contributions related to remote sensing, instrumentation, mapping, data fusion, and predictions.

Furthermore, NASA’s aeronautics community has possible contributions to manage the actual suppression and mitigation efforts through decision support tools for airspace operations coordination that would reduce the human workload during suppression operations. 

NASA is seeking information from government organizations involved in forest and land management (Department of Forest, Interior, Land and Mines, National Guard, Defense, Homeland Security, etc.), the firefighter community, aerial firefighter pilots and operations specialists, airspace coordinators, researchers, scientists, technologists, industry, academia, and other stakeholders who are interested in improving the state of the art of wildfire management.
