Insitu’s ScanEagle UAS can fly military-grade electro-optical cameras during daylight and infrared cameras for night-time imaging.

Insitu, FireWhat and Esri partnered to help aerial reconnaissance for fighting wildfires. Insitu’s INEXA Solutions professional aerial remote-sensing services group will work with FireWhat’s fire professionals, using its GIS customized for firefighters and hosted on Esri’s ArcGIS platform.

Currently, fire incident commanders must work with fire-line information that often is 12 to 24 hours old—while a fire continues to burn. Insitu’s ScanEagle UAS can “fly the gaps,” day and night, providing previously unavailable data collection, analysis and delivery of decision-making information to manned firefighting fleets operating in difficult terrain, smoke or temperature-inversion situations. The comprehensive spatial analytic capabilities of ArcGIS leverage FireWhat’s ability to effectively fight wildfires using technology in an entirely new way.

“This is a revolutionary breakthrough in firefighting,” said Jon Damush, vice president and general manager, Insitu Commercial. “Combining INEXA Solutions’ integrated imagery with FireWhat’s solution that incorporates Esri’s ArcGIS creates a ‘best of breed’ solution that will enable firefighters to quickly determine the best possible actions to take through GIS mapping.”
