Airborne Sensing Platform Deployed To Monitor Fire
On the morning of the November 5, forest rangers detected a fire
at an altitude of about 800m on the steep forest slopes of the
Schneeberg Mountain Range in Lower Austria.
The volunteer fire brigade from Wiener Neustadt's southern base
group (Basisgruppe Süd) and the specially requested airborne
fire service successfully brought the fire under control, despite
the difficult terrain, known for its poor visibility.
Given the non-visible sources of fire, the fire fighters had to
expect new blazes flaring up at any time. Crews enlisted the help
of the DA42 Multi-Purpose Platform, equipped with infrared sensors,
to map the area and detect any remaining blazes that went
undetected by fire fighters.
After only two flights with the Diamond DA42 MPP the fire
extinguishing result was verified and the ground crews withdrew
from the operational area.
