for forest fire fighting in Chile 
OTTAWA, June 13, 2013 /CNW/ - iFMS Chile has purchased Serenity fixed wing 
unmanned aerial vehicle systems for use in forest fire fighting in Chile. 
Serenity will be used for aerial survey of forest fires using both 
electro-optical and infrared cameras, in order to provide a wide range of 
imagery that will be used in immediate support of Chilean forest fire 
fighting. ING Robotic Aviation will be selling systems as well as a training 
package for Chilean operators. Delivery and training will be in September 
"Serenity will be used as an integral tool for the forest fire fighters" said 
Ian Glenn, CEO and CTO of ING Robotic Aviation. "Our equipment will be used 
to get the right information, into the right hands, at the right time." 
The stabilized, gimbal mounted TASE 200 camera system can provide real time 
still and video images in both visual and infrared sections of the spectrum. 
Mosaicking and the development of 3D imagery is readily possible.
