DAS 500

Effective, Long Endurance
Fire-Fighting Drone

A revolutionary firefighting drone.

There are very few credible examples of drones being used to directly attack fires, either by using a retardant or by controlling a hose line. There are a series of limitations with drone technology that have, thus-far, impeded the use of drones in attacking fire-fighting scenarios.

Our drone technology successfully addresses these engineering challenges, to create a stable platform for aerial firefighting.

The DAS 500 is purpose-built for front-line firefighting operations and is used to directly attack fires with a large hose line.
