Video of world's first 300°C fireproof drone demonstration test is released
In NEDO project, enRoute Co., Ltd. has developed a 300 ° C fireproof drone capable of short-distance aerial photography of 5m to 10m above the fire source. Such fireproof drone was developed for the first time in the world.
News release: World's first 300°C fireproof drone capable of approaching and shooting short-distance from fire source has been developed -sample monitoring in April and aim for "firefighter’s flying teammate"-
Please check the video of fireproof drone demonstration test below. (Japanese only)
In this experiment, clear and detailed on-site confirmation is realized by short distance aerial photography from 5 m to 10 m above the fire source under high temperature environment of 300°C. The image from the camera mounted on the drone(an infrared camera can be additionally mounted to grasp the heat source in more detail) is transmitted to the operator in real time. The information from this camera makes it possible to operate so as to avoid long exposure to extremely high temperature environments and to prevent the breakdown or damage of the drone.
