Post fire hotspot detection

In the event of a forest fire

In the event of a wildfire or a controlled burn, information is critical for fire management and suppression.

A drone equipped with a thermal camera is a powerful tool to collect information both during and after a fire. With the thermal camera, you can see the location of the fire through the smoke, but also the location and intensity of hotspots, helping the decision makers direct the firefighting activities. After the fire, it is a very efficient way to find lingering hotspots that might cause the wildfire to rekindle but also asses the overall damage. With access to historical data it is also possible to quantify the damage and plan for upcoming actions
