As we all know, once a wildfire is ignited, it spreads at an average speed of 22 kilometers per hour. It takes about 4 minutes to walk the firefighters, so it is impossible for firefighters to go faster than the speed of off-road fires, especially when the wind is blowing. Usually, when wildfires occur, firefighters don't have enough time to go to barricades and block roads. In such an emergency, a drone may be an amazing aerial tool, but only if it is used safely.


Why isn't drones widely used to assist wildfire suppression?

Currently, wildfire airspace is considered by the government as an "unmanned area." Concerns about safety are due to the lack of unmanned traffic management systems (UTMs) and communication links with drone operators. From multi-rotor aircraft to fixed wing, many different types of manned aircraft are used for wildfire suppression, and collisions between drones and manned aircraft can be fatal to pilots and / or manned aircraft passengers. Because of this concern, manned aircraft must land when unauthorized drones fly into wildfire areas without authorization. once the UTM system is implemented, and drone service providers work with emergency personnel, both government concerns will be eased.

What is the difference between drones in wildfire emergency response?

Although improper use can bring security risks, drones can actually provide important support for further improving security. First, the drone can enter the air in as little as 30 minutes to begin evaluating the affected area. In this way, emergency personnel can know exactly where the source of the fire is, and it has spread without letting anyone approach. This can reduce the time between the fire and the initial firefighting attack, so that emergency response personnel can deploy ahead of time as the fire spreads. By using thermally capable payloads, dangerous hot spots can be identified and fires can be identified in real time in terms of direction and speed. Due to the use of a thermal sensor, this can be done even if fog or thick smoke prevents clear visibility.
