TOOLS OF THE AERIAL FIREFIGHTER’S TRADE
FIRE DETECTION & MAPPING MISSIONS
Fires, both wild and urban, are unpredictable and dangerous if left unrestrained. Those responsible for saving people, protecting property, and minimizing uncontrolled fires’ economic impact are aerial firefighting aircrews. Sensor technology, such as electro-optical and infrared thermal imaging, allows airborne crews to better predict, detect and analyze fire behavior. This heightened awareness is critical as it provides better direction for the grounded first responders as they battle flames through the smoke, haze, or in the dead of night.
Trakka Systems’ total solution package subsumes the technology necessary to contain even the unruliest of fires. TrakkaCam’s radiometric airborne camera system has the capability to measure and transmit temperature and U.V. discharge levels while optimizing visibility with outstanding imagining and clarity. With automatic slaving to the high-intensity TrakkaBeam searchlight, airborne crews can provide powerful lighting for those in compromised environments. TrakkaMaps provides 3D, street, satellite, and augmented reality views for further situational clarity and communication between airborne and ground teams.
Be confident that the multi-intelligence data gathering tools offered by Trakka Systems’ will deliver optimal outcomes, especially in the heat of the moment.
