Low cost Wildfire Technologies Air/Ground Firefighters & Civilians 1 Air Attack IR+GIS, ultra easy 2 Moving-map GIS for Firefighters 3 DisasterRadio maps & tweets By: Mark Zaller www.AerialFireTech.org
Incident Command Air Attack Headquarters DifficultiesFire Camp Air Attack Not capturing new map data Paper maps not effective nor available FM Voice Ground covered with smoke No Data transmission Smoke Tanker Base Paper fire maps Heli-base Dispatch DARK
Incident Command Low cost Changes Headquarters Fire Camp Air & Ground Air Attack Transmit Spot Fire drawings IR+GIS Moving-Map FM Voice Instant Situational Awareness Satellite Data transmit See through Smoke & Dark Improves Safety Tanker Base Ground Moving-Maps with Offline GIS Heli-base Dispatch
Airborne IR+GIS, just another Window IR + GIS: Intuitive 1st look, Subliminal 2nd time Passive: No training, 3rd person nor interaction required Instant situational awareness – Eyes spend more time outside Overall improved efficiency. Continued operations over smoke & at night Fresh details always: Fire lines - Road names - Place search - Routing, etc. Safety: Terrain & hazards recognition. Ground teams visible through smoke with IR
3D GIS Moving-map 90 missions in 2010 GIS: Instant Situational Awareness Initial Attack: Fire History, Powerlines, DPA, Topo details Project Fires (Extended Attack): Daily Fire lines, hot spots, burn out, dozer & hand lines, division breaks, drop points, dip sites, etc. 3D or 2D, easy zoom if desired DeLorme Xmap $250. DIY on AerialFireTech.org
InfraRed Fixed mount 320x240 with clear view Oriented to the Air Attack’s view Easy installation & certification Very effective with smoke/night Hot Rocks Color Passive, Intuitive, turns on/off with plane No training or 3rd person needed Free on many CWN planes
Normal photo with smoke Same place with infrared Heads-up mounted display same direction as camera
IR coupled with GIS has become a “IR equipped air attack aircraft reduced the needmost powerful set of tools for the to withdraw firefighters from the fireline”air attack platform, and without those “crews costing many thousands of dollars per day,capabilities I have almost forgotten disengagement, and the resulting loss ofhow I did it any other way“ productivity, can represent a significant cost.”Tom Bagwell, ATGS ORCA Team -Large Fire Cost Review for FY2009
