General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. (GA-ASI) is supporting the California Air National Guard (CA ANG) as they provide real-time reconnaissance for California’s Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) firefighting operations in Southern California.

CA ANG’s 163rd Attack Wing routinely performs aerial reconnaissance for firefighting missions using their Predator B/MQ-9 Remotely Piloted Aircraft upon request by CAL FIRE. The GA-ASI manufactured RPA includes the company’s Lynx Multi-mode Radar with Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) to detect fire lines even through smoke-filled skies. The Multi-Spectral Targeting System provides the Electro-optical/Infrared (EO/IR) cameras with live high-definition color and infrared video feeds to ground command posts. This 24x7 real-time imagery delivers critical situational awareness to both ground and air fire-suppression operations.
