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