Drone

How It Works

IGNIS is a complete system that embeds to drones. It carries a payload of ping-pong size chemical spheres. Upon command, the spheres are injected with glycol, starting a chemical reaction that will generate flames after being dropped precisely where you want them.

  • IGNIS comes integrated with a drone, or it can be installed on a variety of drones from leading manufacturers.
  • Fly and control IGNIS with our Android app.
  • Ignite 50-75 acres with a single payload.
  • Affordably ignite several hundred acres in a single day.
  • Save on manpower and risk and versus more costly solutions.
  • Training and full service contracts available.

Safe & Affordable

Sending IGNIS in is safer. IGNIS mounts to drones, carrying ignitable payloads. No need to expose personnel to dangerous situations.

One drone can do the work of several people

“When trying to be profitable, manpower and minimizing costs are huge. People cost a lot. One Amplified Drone can do the work of several people, and quicker.”

More efficient for fire management

“Drones can do many different things bigger machines cannot. Ignis is the only system I’ve seen that adapts an existing technology to make it more efficient for fire management.”

A valuable and reliable tool

“We had the opportunity to test and evaluate the Drone Amplified Ignis PSD payload on several wildfires in 2018. It proved to be a valuable and reliable tool for tactical firing operations on Incidents. It’s effective for getting to those tough-to-get-to ridges or terrain that is either too dangerous or to labor intensive to burn safely.”

Really advantageous

“We’ve used Ignis in the field a number times and it worked really well – super effective. Really advantageous. We’re grateful.”

Control intensity better

“The main benefit is we can burn at night or dense smoke as the aircraft can be operated utilizing the forward-looking infrared camera. Not only because you can control intensity better, but you can utilize it as a holding resource to find spot fires easily at night or in smoky conditions.”
