Mission Details

Powerful optical zoom for detailed imagery of target areas, as well as broad-view imagery, in both infrared and HD.

On-board integrated computer system with GIS mapping capabilities.

Ground and fire imagery through smoke.

Missions are flown above TFRs, remaining clear of other fire aircraft.

Additional Details

Real-Time Fire Intelligence: Our flight crew can communicate with fire personnel via FM or VHF radio and/or text and email messages to relay information as requested by fire personnel regarding events not observable by ground crews due to remoteness or smoke. Scenario examples: Fire line penetration detection, fire spotting detection, imminent threats to life or property, scouting of safety zones or escape routes, look-out assistance for ground personnel engaged in high-risk operations.

Drop Assessment: Our systems can assess accuracy and effectiveness of retardant drops in real-time or post-mission using HD video recordings.

Video Documentation: HD video recordings of fire lines, air drops, personnel movements and actions, etc. are useful in daily situation reports, planning, and post-incident analysis.

QR Codes: QR codes for viewing fire perimeter or geo-referenced hot spot maps can be made immediately available to ground crew personnel.

Hotspot Data

Numbered hotspot locations for easy reference in Google Earth, Avenza, and other programs.
