Bridger Aerospace Group, LLC, the leader in aerial wildfire management, suppression and mapping, has announced the early release of FireTrac. FireTrac is a web and mobile app that provides near real-time critical information on all wildfires across the United States, notifying users of potential fire dangers and displaying easy-to-use interactive maps and high-resolution photo overlays so users know where the fires are.
FireTrac is feature-packed with local, up-to-date fire information such as evacuation notices and road restrictions, weather and air-quality data, and real-time text alerts. Additionally, the FireChat feature enables users to report fires, share updates and upload their own imagery.
‘Our mission is to save lives, property and habitats threatened by wildfires, leveraging our world-class team, specialized aircraft, and innovative use of technology and data,’ said Tim Sheehy, founder and CEO of Bridger Aerospace. ‘FireTrac is the next step toward our goal of providing real-time wildfire intelligence and situational awareness to all who need it.’
FireTrac imagery is captured by an advanced aerial fire-mapping platform that delivers high-resolution fire imagery to app users. Bridger aircraft equipped with multi-spectrum precision survey payloads provide advanced precision mapping and multi-image orthophoto capabilities. The sensors can quickly synthesize high-fidelity aerial imagery in-flight and detect anomalies, including hot spots.
