About Us

IGNIS is the brainchild of two University of Nebraska-Lincoln engineering professors who developed the technology for igniting prescribed fires using drones. “What we’ve invented is the game changer – the technology to more safely, and efficiently, manage fires,” said Carrick Detweiler, one of the inventors and CEO of Drone Amplified. “We can send drones into active fires in any terrain. This is far safer and less expensive than sending in humans on four-wheelers, or trying to navigate with helicopters,” he added.
