Wildfires present a complex, daunting and catastrophic challenge in today’s world. Threatening lives and costing billions in economic damages, the problem will continue to get worse as temperatures rise globally. How can we improve wildfire response to prevent the loss of life and assets?

In this project, XPRIZE is collaborating with partners worldwide to design a Wildfires Prize Design that drives scalable innovation that can rapidly detect and extinguish wildfires; a fully integrated autonomous system that detects, responds and suppresses wildfires, before escalation into a large fire event.
