Wildfire Mapping Services

What places us firmly at the head of the competition is that we are able to operate both at night and in the day-time with our thermal imaging system. 100,000 ha/hour at 4000ft AGL with sidelap (190724_yyc_ir, 40cm EGD). Our MMT new technology means that we are able to map faster and more accurately, thus reducing both flight time and costs.
