Firefighting

Key Benefits

Urban Firefighting

Provide immediate aerial intelligence and guide optimal response to protect people and property

 

Forest Firefighting

Scan vast areas and quickly identify firelines, assess their threat, and optimize response

 

HazMat Operations

Rapidly and remotely identify threats while keeping response teams safe

 

Urban Firefighting

Traditional Challenges Urban Fire Response

Arriving on scene, smoke, buildings, and obstacles can make it challnging to determine the scope of a fire and its threat

Limited ground perspectives on the fire can hinder the optimal deployment of attention and resources

In the aftermath of a fire disaster, it can be hazardous and costly to survey and document damage

How Drones Aid Urban Firefighting

Fly over buildings and obstacles, and see through smoke with thermal cameras to help prioritize targets

Stream live video intelligence back to command centers to align teams and eliminate uncertainty

Leverage high-resolution cameras to remotely monitor remaining threats and document damage for future analysis

Forest Firefighting

Traditional Challenges For Forest Firefighting

Inadequate road infrastructure and complex terrain makes patroling high-risk forested regions challenging for ground teams

From the ground, it can be difficult to quickly determine the scope of a fire and to prioritize targets

Without eyes on scene, it can be challenging for incident commanders to optimally direct the front line

How Drones Facilitate Forest Firefighting

Bypass natural obstacles and quickly scout high-risk forested regions from above

Fly above the tree-line to quickly ascertain the scope of the fire, and establish firelines and firebreaks

With an eye in the sky, incident commanders can determine where to deploy resources

HazMat Operations

Traditional Challenges in HazMat Operations

Before teams can move in, gaining mission-critical situational awareness costs precious time when every moment matters

HazMat teams are exposed to great risk when they assess for gas, liquid, and solid hazardous materials

Disposable HazMat suits and equipment are expensive and cumbersome, increasing response times and operation costs

How Drones Help HazMat Operations

Rapidly scan the hazard and its surroundings, and provide incident comannders with critical intelligence to guide next steps

Hover near and remotely assess the nature of threats with thermal cameras and multi-gas detector payloads

Capture evidence of HazMat and clean-up procedures for cost analysis and future training documentation
