Forest Guard / Forest Fire Fighting System

Forest Guard

Forest Guard cruises continuously for a long time in assigned forest area. When detecting a fire, it will fly near to the spot, and release drones to check it closely. Then, the system will judge the situation of the fire autonomously and send the information to the people in control center. After judgment, the airship releases fire-extinguishing bombs under the auxiliary positioning from drones to fight the fire accurately and monitors the spot to prevent it from reviving. Meanwhile, when firefighters arrive there, this system assists the commander by providing location of the team members and giving real-time feedback of the fire situation.
