Forest fireproofing patrol unmanned aerial vehicle
Forest fireproofing patrol unmanned aerial vehicle

220,000 fires happened in world forest every year, which is a sudden, destructive and difficult natural disaster. It has great harm to forest ecology and the safety of human property.
The traditional fireproofing method is inefficient and can’t be detected or extinguished the fire in time.
Distributed solar charging stations have enhanced the UAV's ability to fly longer, which allowing it to inspect large areas of forest. The UAV carries fire extinguishing agent, through the infrared thermal imager to find the flame and put it out in time, to prevent the spread of the fire.
