Drone from Insitu

Boeing subsidiary Insitu loaned one of their ScanEagle aircraft to survey the Paradise fire in Olympic National Park. The tests are reported to have gone “very well”. Insuitu’s drone was able to map out fire boundaries and help helicopter crews find hot spots. This winter, they plan to do further testing and get a better understanding of the capabilities of the drones.
