This program element does not have a proposal due date. First step (Step-1) proposals may be submitted at any time. This program element seeks ideas that span observation and information system technologies that: • Enhance capabilities of existing science instruments needed for monitoring pre- fire, active-fire, and post-fire environments; • Reduce mass and power of instruments for accommodation by next-generation small spacecraft and aerial platforms; • Enable unprecedented measurements from multiple vantage points through model-directed, coordinated observations using autonomous tasking; • Address computational challenges for modeling and for data acquisition, fusion, and processing in a real-time environment; • Facilitate machine learning and artificial intelligence to create new data products needed for wildfire management and for management of the constellation of observing platforms; • Enable the seamless exchange of information between spaceborne, airborne, and in situ assets.
