    Presentation Transcript
    1. Small Satellite Mission on Bi-spectral Infrared Detection (BIRD) – a Prototype Mission of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) The BIRD technology demonstrator mission was prepared and is conducted by the German Aerospace Center with support of several German institutes, enterprises, and universities Astro- und Feinwerktechnik Adlershof GmbH Global Fire Monitoring Center

    2. BIRD Primary Mission Goals: Test of new micro satellite technology components Test of a dedicated Hot Spot Recognition System Test of new algorithms toestimate quantitative characteristics of wildfires, volcanic activity, and coal seam fires

    3. The BIRD Main Payload • Payload platform of the flight model with assembling tools • Total mass: 30.2 kg

    4. First Image: 05/11/2001, 9:42:40 UTC • Mid-wave Infra-Red channel (3.4-4.2µm) • (semi-transparency overlay) WAOSS- nadir channel (840-900nm)

    5. Hot spot detection by GOES and BIRD (23 November 2001) • GOES • BIRD

    6. BIRD MIR images of bush fires, Sydney area, Australia obtained on: a - January 4, 2002 b - January 5, 2002 c - January 9, 2002

    7. Typical characteristics of fire fronts (BIRD, Australia, January 5, 2002)

    8. Fires in Tannu mountains, Siberia, Russia (BIRD, 24 July 2002) Radiative energy release MIR channel

    9. Hotspots in the area of Lago Mar Chiquita, Argentina (BIRD, 22 August 2002) Radiative energy release
