Sage NEON deployment to the Konza LTER site in Kansas

In April 2022, 4 Sage nodes (3 Wild Waggle Nodes and 1 Waggle Blade Node) were deployed with an array of sensors (thermographic camera, air quality sensor, etc.) to collect data to better our understanding of smoke and wildfire detection.

Thermal imaging was used to understand how air temperature can be used to detect smoke and the early warning signs of fire.
