Description:

SEILAF is a system designed for training, simulation and research in the fight again forest fires in a 3D world of a great virtual realism. A consortium of technological centers CITIC and CATEC, enterprises such as INDRA and FASSA, and the University of Cordoba have taken part in the design. The simulation center is located in Aeropolis, near the airport of Seville in Andalusia, Spain.

The system is comprised by three interconnected simulators: a flight simulator of a 412 Bell helicopter, a flight simulator of a fixed wing aircraft to coordinate the tasks of the aerial coordinator and a launching command outpost simulator where the forest fire extinction technical direction team can be trained, all this in a relevant realistic scenery of high resolution. This idea is totally original. It will be the first time that a spreading fire server with the modeled action of extinction resources is included in a tactical environment.

Since the first fits and tests of the system we have been able to analyze and model hypotheses in the development of exercises, responding what resource management in a regime of determined fires is the most efficient and safe tactic of fire extinction.

Keywords: virtual training, SEILAF, fire and smoke simulation
