  • Introduction

    The maturity of the technologies for the guidance and control of DRONES allows proposing innovative operational options such as the ability to spray (a liquid) or spread (a powder) a significant amount of an agent of any sort at a pre-established point in the atmosphere.
    This is the case of NitroFirex, an innovative project that integrates available technologies from the defense industry to achieve this operational capability. Of all possible applications the forest-fire fighting “at night” is where NitroFirex places its highest priority. This is because of the ecological damage these fires bring forth, the cause social alarm they generate and the human and economic losses that take place whilst fighting them.
    NitroFirex at last offers the long awaited nighttime firefighting capability; the main operational lack of actual aerial means and also allows direct support to the ground crews in their relentless fight against forest fires.

    1. Forest Fires
