CACI is providing electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors, which deliver data that can be analyzed faster and enable real-time aerial heat-mapping technology, to support firefighting operations. This mission technology also helps protect the lives of firefighters, allowing them to focus on flying through dangerous conditions while the EO/IR technology records data.
CACI’s CM142 multi-spectral gyro-stabilized imaging systems are mounted on vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to provide real-time aerial mapping and surveillance for frontline firefighting teams. Those mapping and surveillance missions are managed by Bridger Aerospace. CACI’s long-wave infrared (LWIR) core incorporated into the compact CM142 systems, enable firefighters to monitor wildfires at night, a key capability that helps identify when fires break containment, guides aerial tanker drops, and triggers needed evacuations.
