To deal with the wildfires in Victoria, we need to arrange the drones reasonably. Taking into account capability, safety, economy and topography, we use Mean-Shift algorithm to determinate the optimal numbers and mix of drones and predict the situation of extreme wildfires in the future. Finally, we determine the optimal number and combination of drones after optimization. According to the size, frequency and locations of wildfires in Victoria in 2019, we use logistic model to estimate the general location of the wildfires. And we use Mean Shift algorithm to find the Optimal number, mix and locations of drones. The result is we need 95 SSA drones, 122 repeater drones and 122 drones with two functions, and the total cost is $3,390,000.
