Wildland fires burn hotter and are growing at an unprecedented scale, making the situation extraordinarily dangerous for firefighters and residents in proximity to these fires. New tools are needed to help fire management teams make informed and real-time decisions about fire movement to maximize ground crew effort and safety. Learn how Bridger Aerospace's unmanned aircraft system (UAS), with its endurance time of over 13 hours of flight and payload of four specialized cameras, is the solution from 10,000 feet.
