Absolute Fire Solutions and TracPlus Global are pleased to announce support for AFS FAST Trac data-logging units within TracPlus’s tracking service.Â This development allows crucial airborne fire fighting event information to be integrated and presented within a single common operating picture provided by TracPlus.
As part of the Australian Fire Aircraft Monitoring System (AFAMS), Australian fire agencies will be able to seamlessly monitor load volumes, drop volumes and splits, location of drops and fills, as well as vertical distance from fill to drop, and course and speed over ground at drop.
“The importance of Australian firefighting agencies being able to access event information in real-time cannot be overstated.” said Stuart Campbell, CEO of TracPlus Global. “The National Aerial Firefighting Centre (NAFC) has set the standard in terms of establishing a national integration program that allows national and state agencies to see a single common picture of all airborne firefighting operations. This capability adds a new level of depth and detail to that picture, and TracPlus is proud to be the integration provider making that happen.”
Added Steve Matthews, AFS President “In Australia, due to the widespread support of our client base there, NAFC and its client agencies are now able to view data on S-64, S-61, Bell 212, Bell 205, and AS350 series aircraft operating different bucket types and belly tanks, from within their TracPlus access.Â They can also export this data into reports and mapping files which show the intensity of the support they have provided to local communities as an incident progresses.”
FAST Trac is an STC’d event logging system which converts analog or digital inputs into data packages that can be transmitted over almost all approved SATCom or AFF systems, as well as some cellular networks.Â The system is capable of monitoring bucket gates, belly tanks, load cells, application and spreading systems and ETM/HUMS systems to produce either onboard data or near real time data which can take the form of alerts, or which can be viewed on the web.
TracPlus Global provides a mission critical platform upon which emergency services, first responders, government agencies and private corporations can quickly and easily share real time global tracking of critical assets (aircraft, helicopters, vehicles, vessels and personnel) with each other to create a common, shared view of any situation where people are operating in harm’s way.Â TracPlus enables operators to choose tracking systems that best meet their specific requirements (regardless of manufacturer or tracking provider) without compromising their ability to easily and securely participate in hastily formed collaborative networks for emergency management and response, or to meet contractual requirements for tracking and occupational safety and health.
