The New Era of Wildfire Intelligence

Hummingbird is the pioneer in the application of remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) on wildfire landscapes. Since 2014 we have demonstrated the high value of hotspot and visible mapping in fireline operations across Canada. As former firefighters, our product development, direction and solutions incorporate industry knowledge and experience. 

These solutions, ranging from low-level infrared and visible imagery to high-level intensity scans and live-fire monitoring, are made possible by our proprietary software tools designed to maximize the value of drones on the fireline.

Whether you require scanning of a 100,000 hectare fire, or live footage streamed back to the Incident Command Post, Hummingbird can deliver for less than the cost of an intermediate helicopter. 

We’re proud of our responsive, adaptable, fire focused company. Our products are leading how fire suppression intelligence is gathered and our roadmap will keep it that way. Contact us if you have any questions about the products, services or technology we specialize in.

We love talking fire.
