TracPlus Global is proud to announce that theNational Aerial Firefighting Centre (NAFC) of Australia has renewed their AFAMS data integration contract with TracPlus Global.
The contract, first issued in 2010, Â saw the establishment of the Australian Fire Aircraft Monitoring System (AFAMS) which intregrates tracking data from all contracted firefighting aircraft and deliveres it in real time it toÂ nineteen federal and state agencies.
In his Chair’s Report of the NAFC Annual Report 2011, Shane Fitzsimmons AFSM and Commissioner of the New South Wales Rural Fire Service noted:
“IÂ would also like to make particular mention of another national collaborative project facilitated by NAFC – the Australian Fire Aircraft Monitoring System (AFAMS). 2010-11 saw the successful completion of the first stage of implementation of the AFAMS which now provides an automatic, nationwide aircraft tracking capability across the entire NAFC fleet.
While this outcome in itself has been incredibly valuable, of equal note is the way in which a national service has been achieved through collaboration and cooperation between NAFC member states and territories, aircraft suppliers, tracking vendors and our contracted integration provider, Tracplus Global.
I am very proud of the continuing innovation and cooperation between NAFC members to provide the most up to date and innovative approaches to aerial firefighting and supporting systems, and look forward to the next stage of the AFAMS which will see the collection of additional data relating to firebombing drops and related events.”
TracPlus Global is committed to supporting NAFC and the AFAMS agencies to improve emergency outcomes across the board, and is continuing this work with the announcement of fire event support in a joint undertaking with Absolute Fire Solutions.
