Improved Data and Communication

One major hurdle that continues to exist in fire management is communication. We currently use radios to relay information, which relies on an accurate interpretation and a precise communication of a situation by a viewer as well as a clear understanding of that communication by the listener.

 

Hopefully in the future, we can use devices that deliver real-time data about an environment directly to the fire management teams and other decision makers rather than relying on these long chains of interpreted information.
