Aerial Situational Awareness for Every Firefighter

Project description

Accelerating the use of Fotokite's situational intelligence in public safety operations

The EU-funded FOTOKITE-SME-P1 project aims to provide firefighters with a significant tool for strengthening public safety in times of crisis – a Fotokite UAV system that can fly autonomously, and stream live thermal and high definition RGB video to firefighters on the ground to improve mission-critical situational awareness and support lifesaving operations. The main goal of the project is to bring public safety dedicated unmanned aerial vehicles to the next level in four emergency areas: scene monitoring, search and rescue, post-fire or disaster assessment, and wildland firefighting for more operational safety and improved response effectiveness to eliminate operational risks in lifesaving efforts.


Fotokite is a breakthrough situational awareness solution whose unique characteristics constitute it as a valuable public safety tool for firefighters. Fotokite aims to ensure operational safety, increase response efficiency, decrease associated workload and operational risks, and help in life-saving efforts.
