 Project objective

Billions of living creatures depend on the sensitivity of fire detectors to assure their safety. However, the available commercial fire detectors have a dangerous gap in that they are blind at the the ignition stage. Indeed, there are 5000 preventable Fire incidents each day in Europe which result in losses in lives and cultural/natural heritage. Current commercial detectors follow the ISO834 standard, which is often too late for intervention and fire control. Amongst existing fire detectors the fastest, most sensitive, and most remote are optical systems, using combined UltraViolet (UV) and InfraRed (IR) detection to eliminate false positives. Nanovation has been working on UV photodetectors based on novel/biocompatible oxide materials since its inception. Today, it has demonstrated world leading solar blind detection with a more compact/cheaper/robust solid-state sensor which is, at least, 10 times faster and operates at lower voltages than incumbent vacuum tube technologies. This has been tested in an industrially relevant environment (TRL 6) for a fire detector and has already convinced potential industrial end-users. This breakthrough has been patent-protected and is based on a novel and proprietary manufacturing technology. Today, we are developing fast based on a business model driven by FIRESENSE’s further development and commercialization. --------FIRESENS Key Winning Indicators---------------- A 5 times lower cost sensor with a factor of 1000 times better in SENSITIVITY A factor of 100 times better in Response SPEED Will IMPACT by Displacing current technology & Standards of fire detection Modify the market (Low cost => wider deployment of safety sensor) Interest of potential customer (see letter Annex 1) bi-products already on sale

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "FIRESENSE" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
