Detecting Contamination Sources
From the air, one can normally see innumerable environmental issues that are impossible to detect from the ground. When you factor in our ability to use cameras and positioning systems, we can identify water contamination in lakes, lagoons, rivers and seas, detect air pollution emitters, be they craters, smokestacks, ovens and other sources that are either prohibited or restricted. All of this is accompanied by recordings and detailed reports regarding their location.
Searching for Missing Persons
In the case of tsunamis, earthquakes, avalanches, mudslides and other such events, aerial imaging, especially via the use of our infrared technology, allows us to detect slight changes in temperature, helping us to locate individuals during the day and, if it is necessary and the location permits, at night.
Fighting Forest Fires
The aforementioned technology also allows for the timely detection of forest fires, meaning that we can contribute to firefighting management efforts undertaken by ground and air brigades, help direct air traffic to prevent collision, detect hotspots to prevent the spread of the fire caused by ash, and confirm the full extinguishment of the affected areas in order to avoid new outbreaks.
