ON FINAL APPROACH
SkyTrac & Absolute Fire Solutions
Partner For The AFAC Bushfire CRC Conference
SKYTRAC SYSTEMS is pleased to announce Coast in Queensland, Australia from Sep-
that it will be exhibiting at the AFAC tember 22-24, 2009 with Absolute Fire So-
Bushfire CRC Conference on the Gold lutions (AFS). At the show, Judy Meier,
Sr. Sales Manager, SkyTrac Systems, and
Steve Matthews, President and CEO, AFS
will launch a leading edge integration de-
signed specifically for operators conduct-
ing Aerial Firefighting missions.
The SkyTrac/Absolute Fire Solutions
integration enables operators to view data
from on board systems in real time. Data
from operational systems such as water
buckets, belly tanks, and remote hooks is
collected by AFS’s new FASTTrack sys-
tem and transmitted to SkyTrac’s data
center via the Iridium Satellite Network
in real time. This integration provides op-
erators access to pick up/drop off infor-
mation such as water volume, weight,
drop pattern, and retardant mix ratios.
Users view data on SkyWeb, SkyTrac’s
web based ground station software.
Kathleen Wallace, President and CEO
of SkyTrac Systems commented; “the
SkyTrac/Absolute Fire Solutions integra-
tion provides operators with timely, accu-
rate, and reliable data never before
available.” Matthews said; “fire agencies
worldwide are now beginning to request
accurate fill and drop data to improve their
own capabilities and efficiencies – FAST-
Track is the first product available to op-
erators which can provide this data across
the wide spectrum of buckets and tanks
currently in use.” “We are excited to work
with AFS and look forward to demon-
strating this solution to aerial firefighting
operators at the show” added Wallace.
