The keywords of this design are prevention and efficiency. Forest Guard cruises continuously for a long time in the assigned forest area, and monitors and fights the fire in time. When detecting a fire, it will fly near to the spot, and release assisting drones to check closely the fire spot. Then, the system will judge the situation of the fire autonomously and send the information to the people in the control center in real-time. After judgment, the airship releases fire-extinguishing bombs under the assisting positioning from drones to fight the fire accurately and monitors the spot to prevent it from reviving. Meanwhile, when firefighters arrive at the fire spot, this system assists the commander by providing the location of the team members and giving real-time feedback of the fire situation.
