PROTECTING NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS


ENVIRONMENTAL & ECOLOGICAL SURVEY (EES)

Trakka Systems’ range of products provides heightened awareness for environmental monitoring such as wildlife conservation, environmental disaster, and fire management. Fires, both wild and urban, are unpredictable and dangerous if left unsurveyed, endangering property and assets and the lives of those living in their path or trying to stop them on the ground or by airborne suppression. Sensor technology, such as electro-optical cameras with IR, allows airborne crews to better predict, detect, and analyze fire behavior. This heightened awareness is critical as it allows for the real-time management of ground-based first responders while also providing direction to aerial responders to accurately deploy their payloads to suppress the fires as they battle through flames, smoke, haze either in the day or at night.

Trakka Systems’ total solution package incorporates the technologies to help contain even the unruliest of fires. TrakkaCam’s radiometric airborne camera system can measure and transmit temperature and UV discharge levels while optimizing visibility with outstanding imaging and clarity. TrakkaMaps provides 3D, street, satellite, and augmented reality views for further situational transparency and communication between airborne and ground-based teams. At the same time, the TrakkaBeam can be utilized to provide standoff situational awareness during nighttime aerial operations. You can be confident that the multi-intelligence data gathering tools offered by Trakka Systems’ will deliver optimal outcomes, especially in the heat of the moment.

MISSION PRODUCTS

TrakkaCam

TC-300-R

Trakka’s TC-300-R longwave thermal imaging camera and video systems give aircrews the ability to detect and evaluate hot spots located on utility companies’ transmission grids, assist in wildfire suppression efforts, pipeline inspections, natural disaster management and pollution assessments. The TC-300-R contains an infrared camera capable of real-time temperature measurements to locate hot spots or burning embers through the smoke and complete darkness.

The high-definition video camera allows for a situational overview and long-range performance due to its continuous zoom capability. The IMU/INS combined with the laser range finder of the TC-300-R provides and holds the geographical locations and points of interest. The geographical information is displayed on the symbology and embedded within the metadata on the Ethernet video streams. The tracker locks the camera to any structure or scene. The TC-300-R seamlessly interfaces with the TrakkaMaps moving map system.
