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
