When an emergency takes place, time is of the essence. Once firefighters safely arrive on-scene, they begin to assess the situation, determining who they can quickly help and those needing special tools, such as drones. Situational awareness is increased once a drone is launched into an emergency. A different point of view, thermal imaging and illuminating darkened areas permits the on-scene commander access to information once inhibited by technology. That technology is now accessible, affordable and usable from FSS Ventures.
US military units have been using forward looking infrared (FLIR) sensors for decades to acquire specific points of interest through haze, dust, atmospheric attenuation and dark hours. DJI produces very affordable FLIR capability in the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual and in specific Zenmuse cameras on compatible platforms. Observing areas of heightened “heat” levels, such as rooftops or a human profile, gives the remote pilot the ability to quickly communicate situational details to lifesavers in the midst of the action. Achieving risk avoidance and simultaneously saving lives is a priceless combination. Let us show you how to achieve this capability.
