Bingen, Wash.-based Insitu, a wholly owned subsidiary of Boeing, has joined forces with FireWhat and Esri for enhanced firefighting efforts using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and geographic information system (GIS) software.

Through this partnership, aerial reconnaissance for fighting wildfires will be provided by Insitu’s INEXA Solutions, comprising INEXA Control, Insitu air vehicles such as the ScanEagle drone, and payloads including the new high-accuracy photogrammetry payload. The INEXA Solutions aerial remote sensing services group will work with FireWhat’s fire professionals, using its GIS software that is customized for firefighters and hosted on Esri’s ArcGIS platform.
