Jun 2024 | No Comment

Muon Space, an end-to-end Space Systems Provider that designs, builds, and operates mission-tailored low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellations, in partnership with Earth Fire Alliance (EFA), has announced the FireSat Constellation. This initiative aims to transform global wildfire response and enhance climate resilience worldwide. FireSat has been developed over the last five years with the expertise and support of Google Research and leading non-governmental organizations (NGOs) including the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF),, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and the Minderoo Foundation along with guidance from over 200 members of the federal, state, and local fire community. The FireSat Constellation will provide the most comprehensive, high-fidelity data to protect Earth’s ecosystems from the escalating threat of wildfires. The Moore Foundation’s report on wildfire details the billions of dollars of economic value that can be generated with even small improvements in response times.

The first phase of the FireSat Constellation, launching in 2026, will consist of three Muon Halo™ satellites equipped with state-of-the-art 6-band multispectral infrared (IR) instruments designed and optimized for the wildfire mission.
