Firefighting Drone Infographic
Learn about firefighting UAV trends.
With the quick deployment of a drone, fire crews can quickly understand the situation at hand with an aerial view. Infrared (thermal) cameras are especially helpful when fighting fires as thermal drone cameras can see through smoke and identify hotspots quickly. Below you will find our 2017 infographic on firefighting drone use cases.
Firefighting Drones: How are drones used to fight fires?
Rapid 360 degree assessment of burning structures See through smoke with thermal imaging cameras to monitor hotspots and crew from above Illuminate nighttime scene operations with floodlights
See current fire conditions and respond accordingly to changing situations Reduce risk through better ground crew monitoring Provide more reliable data to command centers
