Boeing planning to use drones and HoloLens to fight forest fires




Boeing is planning to  make fighting forest fires a lot safer for firefighters by using the latest technologies.

Developed by their Insitu division, their system use large UAVs controlled via their INEXA Control system aided by Microsoft’s HoloLens.

The system converts INEXA Control’s 2D maps into an accurate 3D map of hazardous areas like the location of wildfires and also tracks manned and unmanned vehicles and fire teams on the ground.

The information helps the fire chief solve problems and make decisions more easily while keeping staff safe and also share information more easily with others.
