Scientific Research & Collaborations

Proven Wildfire Science & Technology Solutions

At Technosylva, we work with wildfire agencies and electrical utilities to operationalize fire science.  We amplify the importance of visualizing the science and making it readily accessible to those in the field.  We vigorously test the validity of forecasting wildfire risk and spread predictions in real-world applications. Technosylva believes in advancing wildfire science since its founding in 1997. In 2020 and 2021 alone, Technosylva participated in over 30 peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals.
