Request for Information (RFI) Forestry & Woodland Fire
Detection & Management Systems
1.
1.1
Introduction
Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael - Jewish National Fund (“KKL-JNF”) is the responsible
governmental nominated agency to manage and control the forestry in the State of
Israel.
1.2
Large scale forest & woodland fire events over the last 10 years demonstrated the
need and necessity to explore advanced and modern technologies to assist in forest
fire early detection, management and dispatching of fire fighters (ground and
airborne) and emergency agencies and prevent as much as possible potential
damage to the precious environment not to mention potential loss of property and
human lives.
1.3
KKL-JNF hereby requests information from potential providers regarding the
following systems and technologies: (a) early detection and warning system (b)
central Command-Control and Communication (C³) system for data acquisition,
data fusion and event management, country wide and / or at high risk area's as may
be required (c) technologies for integrating the above systems
1.4
KKL-JNF may, as a result of this RFI, approach one or more of the respondents to
this RFI and/or any other party, in order to obtain additional information or to
demonstrate their systems at location.
1.5
For the avoidance of any doubt it is clarified herein that this RFI shall not, under
any circumstances, constitute any commitment on KKL-JNF’s part to negotiate
with any or all respondents, nor to enter into any agreement for provision of
system or technologies, nor to conduct tender procedure.
2. KKL-JNF Background & Overview
2.1
KKL-JNF work in Israel is concentrated into six action areas that include water,
forestry and environment, education, community development and security,
tourism and recreation, and research and development.

2.2
KKL-JNF plants and maintains over 240 million saplings and manages more than
100 thousand acres of natural woodland. Israel is the only country that entered the
21st century with a net gain in its number of trees. KKL-JNF has helped build over
220 reservoirs and dams that together provide 40% of the water used in Israeli
agriculture, and contribute 300 million cubic meters to Israel’s water storage
capacity.
2.3
KKL-JNF has redeemed over 700,000 acres (280,000 ha) of land for developing
communities, and over 250,000 acres (100,000 ha) for farming in 1000 rural
communities. KKL-JNF uses the latest soil conservation methods to create rich,
fertile soil, perfect for producing the highest-quality crops.
2.4
KKL-JNF is responsible for over 375,000 acres (150,000 ha) of forests and
woodlands in regard to combat desertification, improve carbon balance in the
environment, mitigate climate change, create "Green Lungs" within and around
communities, enhance biodiversity and improve quality of life.
2.5
KKL-JNF staffs are on guard 24 hours a day, preventing wildfires in forests and
woodlands, using fire watchtowers and the latest firefighting equipment.
3. The Requested Information
