Monitoring and supporting research and emergency response
Wildfire monitoring & mapping
Forest fires are becoming increasingly frequent and intense around the world, posing a significant threat to both the environment and human lives. These fires are a major source of carbon emissions, contributing to the issue of global warming. To combat this challenge, Windracers’ drones have a range of capabilities that can greatly enhance the response.
Equipped with advanced sensors and imaging technologies, Windracers’ drones can provide comprehensive surveillance coverage and real-time data on the spread and intensity of wildfires. This information is vital for accurate decision-making and effective deployment of resources.
The ULTRA platform will be used to gather new and a broader range of science data in an effective, lower-carbon, lower cost manner than traditional crewed aviation. The expedition will monitor and measure the impact of climate change on our environment, including ice thickness measurement, marine and mammal life.
