The FB Eye project results from the need of aerial firefighting operators to manage real-time coordination of flight operations, information and to streamline operational response.
The objective is to develop an innovative tool addressing the waterbombing accuracy problem, the most effective weapon against forest fires, since nowadays the water release point is qualitatively eye-assessed by the pilots. This solution enables the waterbomber operators to have a better fire theatre situational awareness and to improve the waterbombing accuracy, which are key features to reduce operations time and costs and to increase response effectiveness and safety.
