Abstract: Key concepts in disaster response are level of preparedness, response times, sustaining the response and coordinating the response. Effective disaster response requires a well-developed command and control framework that promotes the flow of information. The Sensor Web is an emerging technology concept that can enhance the tempo of disaster response. In this paper the authors describe how a satellite-based system for regional wild fire detection is being evolved into a fully-fledged Sensor Web application. Wild fire, disaster, monitoring, decision support, interoperability and architecture.
