Daedalus Airborne Bispectral Imager for mapping complex fires
Angiel EnviroSafe provides airborne fire mapping. For this the company utilizes a twin engine Piper Aztec equipped with a Daedalus ABS (Airborne Bispectral Imager) imaging system. This system has one band in the thermal IR at 8.5 to 12.5 microns and it has a very wide 86 degree field of view.

The equipment is based in the US and can be flown to most American and European sites. It can be sent by commercial airline for mounting on local aircraft at more distant locations. The only requirements are a camera hole and a 28 Volt power supply.

Long term positioning or relocations are very possible, e.g. in Europe (the owner is a citizen of the EC).
