Skyward’s SKY-C2 system helps our customers prepare for potential wildfire events and monitor in real-time fire fronts, safe zones, and escape routes, while tracking firefighter locations
Skyward’s SKY-C2 Wildfire Management System will increase the ability of Forest Service wildfire operators to make decisions during a wildfire event and control operations. It addresses the safety of field-deployed firefighters at risk and the information available to Incident Command Centers and the firing line. The system is composed of a ground station, personnel tracking system enabling location identification and distress alerts, a UAS platform, onboard sensors (visual, infrared, etc.), and Common Operating Picture for visualization.
Skyward’s system optimizes the footprint, cost, and flexibility compared to the only other competitive systems and offers significant technology enhancements over other simple surveillance systems.
Skyward’s SKY-C2 system helps our customers prepare for potential disaster events and monitor in real-time disaster response efforts
Skyward’s SKY-C2 Disaster Response System will increase the ability of Researchers and Emergency Management personnel to assess the potential and prepare for disasters and First Responders to make decisions during disaster events. It addresses the collection, storage, sharing and analysis of relevant data. The system is composed of a ground station, a UAS platform, onboard sensors (visual, infrared, multispectral, LIDAR, etc.), and Common Operating Picture (COP) for visualization.
Skyward’s SKY-C2 is addressing the need for a system that enables free exchange of data between different agencies and different COPs, so stovepipes can be avoided during a disaster event response.
