  • 1. Rev 10/2011
  • 2. The MFB UAV…. What is it? The MFB operates two CyberQuad Maxi Quadrotors for operations and two CyberQuad Minis for training. Real time optical and thermal images are delivered to the Incident Controller via a portable monitor as well as onto the screens in the MFB Control Unit.
  • 3. The MFB UAV…. Challenges Technical • Pilot training • Communications infrastructure • Budget Adaptive • CASA approvals • Legal liability • Dichotomy of opinion • Hazmat investigation: – air monitoring, – Identification of materials placards – Temperature of containers • HART intelligence, • USAR intelligence,
  • 4. The MFB UAV…. What can the MFB use it for? • Situational Awareness for all agencies; (Victorian, Australian, International) • Hazmat investigation: – air monitoring, – Identification of materials placards – Temperature of containers • HART intelligence, • USAR intelligence, • Search • Fire Duty checks, • Aerial Thermal Imaging, • “Over the Hill” surveillance, in difficult to access areas, • Rapid Intervention Access Teams – Flooding • Incident Management Teams • Crew deployment briefing • Media briefing
