Drones are going to do many things for us in the future. They could even help us prevent wildfires. The Unmanned Aerial System for Fire Fighting, which is under development by a team of UNL experts, can ignite and monitor fires in remote areas. It can operate in harsh environments with limited supervision.
The drone enables people to perform fire management tasks with higher efficiency. It can also aid in conservation efforts. More information about this project is available on UNL’s website.
