Forest fires have occurred since the forests have appeared on the earth. In the world, forest fires occur about 200000 times a year on average, and the burned area accounts for about 1‰ of the total forest area in the world. Forest fires seriously destroy forest structure and environment, which lead to the loss of forest ecosystem’s balance, decrease of forest biomass and productivity, even the casualties of human and livestock.
Therefore, the issue of forest fire prevention has become a top priority of forestry work. The advantages of aerial forest fire prevention are becoming more and more obvious, using unmanned aerial vehicles to participate in aerial forest fire prevention will enable the aerial forest fire control to fully perform the advantages in the sky.
