Firefighters fighting a fire while drones analyze the dangerous situation.

AD Smart Firefighting

Cloud and drone technologies can help deliver reliable solutions for firefighting that are changing the way field operations are conducted. AD offers a powerful service platform for firefighters that consists of cloud connected drones and sensors, a customized control room and real-time data

How it works

Spartacus FIREFIGHTER uses cloud-connected drones to deliver centralized situational awareness to fire departments. A drone is deployed by a qualified pilot at an incident scene. The pilot uses a customized pilot app to fly, which is usually done manually but can also be conducted autonomously via the app. The drone uses its sensor payload, which is usually a dual optical-thermal camera to gather video from the scene, which is relayed in real-time back to the web-based control room.

The cloud based AI analytics deliver real-time insights on the live video, while the cloud permanently stores both the footage and the AI insights. Multiple pilots at difference scenes can be operating simultaneously, with all data coming back in real-time to remote managers. The long-term storage of structured drone data from incident scenes has transformative implications for the future of firefighting.
