FIRE MAPPING
& DETECTION

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.

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.

Did you know?


According to the US Geological Survey, in 2019, it cost approximately $5 billion a year to respond to wildfires, and the net economic impact is about $72 billion a year. Yet wildfires also play an essential role in helping sustain healthy and productive ecosystems. Lightning strikes, sparks from power lines, or spread from a campfire are some of the ways wildland fires start. Wildfires are caused by humans about 85% of the time.
