Aircraft have long been an essential tool in combating wildfires.  Latitude has led the way in developing AFF, retardant drop-tracking, air and ground asset coordination, and other technologies that are standards today for effective and efficient fire attack, asset and crew safety, and post-operations analysis in every major wildfire zone in the world.

Latitude’s SkyNode and IONode products go beyond basic tracking with tools to assess the effectiveness of aerial fire attack assets. The IONode ION100 coupled with a SkyNode communications module collects an array of data related to drop events and uses this data as inputs to our Air Tanker Information System to provide real-time and post-mission KPI metrics.  Incident commanders are able to effectively target appropriate resources, and aircraft contractors have the opportunity to highlight their capabilities and cost-effectiveness.
