With the yearly increase in the number of wildfires ravaging communities across the globe, applying this technology will give back the initiative to the hands of the firefighters. AWRA calculates the exact position, size, direction, and local weather information of the fire, and visualize all this data on a map in real time. Letting firefighters know how the fire is evolving, second by second, day or night. Making sure incident commanders allocate their resources with the biggest punch.
By strategically targeting wildfires, 50% to 70% of the man-hours in a wildfire operation can be saved. Reserving troops for other emergencies or fires.
Controlling the wildfire early on, up to 60% of the ha. land that would have been destroyed can be spared.
With a much smaller area being burned, there will be a massive saving of CO2 and other harmful emissions. Benefitting the health of the communities locally and mitigating global warming.
"Our new partnership with Robotto is a great addition to our drone solution portfolio. Not only as a technological advance on combating wildfires but also a great way to help reduce global Co2 emission."
