UpRISER updates

The UpRISER subproject, monitoring grassland curing using UAVs, is continuing regularly to gather data in our test site in Moorooduc. CASA approval has also been gained for monitoring at a second site at Ferntree Gully. The work is being conducted in close collaboration with CFA and CSIRO. In particular, CFA were recently awarded a National Emergency Management Project (NEMP) Grant to expand their successful grassland curing monitoring program into South Australia, New South Wales, and Tasmania. UAV monitoring may help in that expansion, especially as other states do not have an established human observer program as in Victoria.UAV-imagery
