The main objective of designing a Smart Fire Fighting setting is to develop the methods to deliver precise, near real-time data to first responders in a way that is easily understood, consistent across states and takes into account the importance of task and/or data saturation of the user. 

Incident commanders handling a bushfire, for example, require timely and accurate awareness of the evolving state of the fire, its surrounding environment, and the people involved to be able to act and plan and decide interventions to enable effective operations to save/ protect people and cover the incident as complete as they can. The main aim of this research project is  to design a flexible situational awareness platforms for different members of the fire industry.
