Region starts infrared plane, drone, sattelite controls on area

Terra dei fuochiNaples, November 8 - Air surveillance has been ordered over the southern Italian region of Campania to identify any anomalies and any environmental issues related to illegal waste-management practices that have in recent months hit international headlines.

The aerial oversight will use an ATR 42 MP aircraft bearing infrared vision systems, and aims to help authorities combat environmental crimes such as the illegal burning of rubbish in areas near the city of Naples, which have triggered the location in question to be renamed "Terra dei Fuochi" or "Land of the Fires".


The surveillance system, which was approved Friday by the governor of the Campania region together with the General Commander of the Italian Port Authority Felicio Angrisano, will also be backed by satellite systems and drones.
