Intterra is supporting California Office of Emergency Services (OES), CALFIRE, FIRIS, California National Guard, US Air Force, and General Atomics in a joint exercise today with remote sensing products, bringing in live drone video into CALFIRE, CAL OES and federal common operating platforms to assist decision makers during the exercise and to enhance preparedness for earthquakes and other all-hazard situations.
It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to field test a new technology even before you launch the company that's building it, but that was indeed the case with SITUATIONANALYST’s Aircraft Intel tool. Initially field tested during Cal Fire's battle with the Southern Fire Seige of 2007 and again in NorCal in 2008, Aircraft Intel—paired with a super high-tech aircraft imagery service from Range and Bearing Corporation—helped provide much-needed aid to those events as firefighters labored to understand what was happening in real time during the firefight. Ventura County Fire Department helped in subsequent years pioneer with Intterra the regular use of live Infrared support to firefighting efforts. The technology has become an everyday tool since then with a permanent home in the SITUATIONANALYST software.
