Forest Guard / Forest Fire Fighting System

Forest Guard

Forest Guard is an intelligent and unmanned Forest Fire Fighting System. It cruises and monitors forests continuously for up to a month, and extinguishes the forest fire autonomously and immediately when finds one.
The airship is equipped with cameras and sensors to detect the fire. When finds one, it will fly near to the spot and release drones to check it carefully. Then it will judge autonomously the situation of the fire and start processing. The airship will release fire-extinguishing bombs accurately under the assist of drones. After the fire is extinguished, it will monitor the spot for 24 hours to prevent the fire from reviving.
