Fire Management Solutions
Providing more efficient and safer options for Fire Management in North Queensland and beyond.
The IGNIS 2 Incendiary
Northern Drone Services has taken possession of the only IGNIS 2 Incendiary north of Brisbane, bringing the drone incendiary option to North Queensland.
A more efficient and safer option
Drone utilisation provides a more efficient and safer option for ground crews, eliminating the risk to fire fighters. An incendiary drone moves faster than ground crews through the bush and takes away the risk of trips, falls, fatigue, or even snake bites.
Better “Dragon Egg” delivery
The IGNIS 2 offers more precise deployment of “Dragon Eggs” from just above the tree line. A drone incendiary is capable of carrying 400 of these chemical spheres, with a 20 minute flight time aboard a DJI M600 Pro.
Improved accuracy eliminates redundancy of eggs that are deployed outside of the planned burn area.
Producing the desired effect
The Drone is pre-programmed before flight from a KML PDF file supplied by the contractor of the burn area. The intensity of the fire is then programmed with the distance between balls dropped and the route requested to achieve the desired effect.
