Firefighting Drones

Advanced AI Solutions produces smart, fire-suppressing drones that can be deployed and managed through a variety of devices. AI software built into the drones allows early detection of fires and powerful, autonomous extinguishing capabilities.

Our fire suppression technology works one of two ways:

  1. Capable of extinguishing fires in areas up to 1.2 acres in size, the fire drone trailer (FDT) can be operated by one person with a pickup truck.
  2. The autonomous fire drone tower detects and targets fires through use of a fully-automated system of AI software.

What is a Fire-Associated Risk Event?

Fire-associated risk event means any event or the occurrence of which presents an increased risk of fire.

FARSA

“Fire-Associated Risk Surveillance Asset (FARSA)” means any sensor or other component configured to detect fire, temperature, or to detect debris for which a relatively high risk of fire is associated. It may include power line-based sensors and remote-based sensors, such as temperature sensors, wire tension sensors, ice costing sensors, tension clamp sensors, weather sensors, cameras, including but not limited to thermal imaging cameras, smoke sensors, infrared sensors.

 

Fire-Mitigating Asset & Drone

A fire-mitigating asset means any unmanned aircraft or water spraying system configured to extinguish or substantially reduce the spread of fire.

Fire-mitigating drone means an unmanned aircraft configured to deploy water or a fire-mitigating agent toward a target for mitigating an actual or potential fire event.

Surveillance Drone

Surveillance Drone means an unmanned aircraft configured to follow a flight path or to be remotely piloted via wireless communications about infrastructure or protected area for and comprising an onboard fire-associated risk surveillance asset for purposes of discovering and detecting a fire-associated risk event.

At least one of the one or more unmanned aircraft (or “drones”) or one of the FARSAs may comprise a surveillance drone that is configured to fly along a flight path in search of a fire-associate risk event. In this regard, the surveillance drone may comprise, for example, and not limited to, at least one onboard sensor for detecting temperature, infrared, or cameras and/or sensors for identifying objects such as debris on power lines.

The surveillance drone may be programmed to fly along a pre-determined flight path or to be manually directed by a remote human pilot along a spontaneous discerned flight path. The surveillance drone may be used to aid in the identification of objects associated with a fire-associated risk event.

Unmanned Aircraft & Water Spraying System

Unmanned aircraft means any aircraft operating or designed to operate autonomously or to be piloted remotely without a pilot on board; and “water spraying system” means any system providing a source of water to a network of installed valves and spray nozzles within or adjacent to a protected infrastructure or protected area, the activation of which results in the spraying of water or a fire-mitigating agent on, beneath, or adjacent to the protected infrastructure or protected area. 

At least one of the one or more unmanned aircraft (or “drones”) or one of the FARSAs may comprise a surveillance drone that is configured to fly along a flight path in search of a fire-associate risk event. In this regard, the surveillance drone may comprise, for example, and not limited to, at least one onboard sensor for detecting temperature, infrared, or cameras and/or sensors for identifying objects such as debris on power lines.

The surveillance drone may be programmed to fly along a pre-determined flight path or to be manually directed by a remote human pilot along a spontaneous discerned flight path. The surveillance drone may be used to aid in the identification of objects associated with a fire-associated risk event.

Thermal Camera

One of the FARSAs may comprise a thermal camera, such as an infrared camera. Such a thermal camera can be coupled to the surveillance drone, installed remotely (ex: on a post or tower), and configured to monitor a subject space or portion of the infrastructure within a protected area. The thermal camera may be configured to monitor ground temperature or temperature at the surface of the infrastructure. nnUpon the controller coupled to the thermal camera detecting a temperature that indicates a fire, the controller may deploy one or more unmanned aircraft or other firefighting assets, such as a water spraying system. To this end, software associated with the controller, which may comprise artificial intelligence, may prepare and send command instructions to one or more unmanned aircraft of the system via the network connection, thereby enabling the unmanned aircraft to mitigate the fire-associated risk event, or additionally/alternatively may activate the water spraying system in at least a portion of the protected area.nnFor example, upon receiving such instructions from the controller, one or more unmanned aircraft may deploy water or a fire-retardant composition to the fire. The unmanned aircraft may optionally enhance the action of fighting fire by making use of an onboard FARSA, such as a thermal camera or infrared sensor, to identify and target the fire event.

Other FARSAs for integration with the system may comprise a power line -based sensor or remote -based sensors, such as, for example, a temperature sensor, a wire tension sensor, ice costing sensor (a sensor that detects ice formation on power lines), a tension clamp sensor, a weather sensor, a camera other than thermal imaging camera, or other sensors for detecting temperature, infrared, humidity, mass, vibration, and the like.nnOne or more of these FARSAs may be implemented in the system by installing on towers, poles, or on unmanned aircraft. The autonomous firefighting system may comprise a water spraying system, for example, and not limitation, a water spraying system comprising a water reservoir (or “water tank”) and a network of piping for routing the water from within the water reservoir to a distal point where a valve and/or spray nozzle are disposed, thereby enabling the spray of water or another fire-mitigating agent. In some embodiments, a tank may not be required, for example, where a pressurized water source is available.nnEach valve of a series of valves associated with the water spraying system can be controlled by the controller of the autonomous firefighting system, such that upon detecting a fire event in a first area, one or more valves and spray nozzle(s) can become activated by the controller for spraying water at the targeted fire event in the first area. In contrast, valves and nozzles in second or other areas may remain inactivated (closed).
