Landscape fires are one of the most devastating global problems the world is facing today.
Those catastrophic events ruin natural habitats of wildlife, threaten whole ecosystems, force people to flee their homes, and emit more CO2 to the atmosphere than global road, rail, shipping and air transport combined.
If that wasn’t enough, rescue teams have to rely on outdated technology in situations where every wasted minute can cost human lives.
What we do
KrattWorks is focusing on combating forest and landscape fires with machine learning and AI. Our UAVs (flying drones) keep an eye on the wildfire area and stream data to the server via mobile network. This provides us with up-to-date surveillance information.
Based on data, we generate accurate situational maps in real time and can predict behaviour of wildfire for up to 8 hours. This enables rescue teams to make precise decisions even before the situation begins to escalate.
KrattWorks system is fully automated. We have successfully challenged many disadvantages that existing wildfire surveillance systems are facing today. KrattWorks UAV can operate in an unlimited area within mobile network range. It is capable of real-time data sharing and doesn’t need human input to analyse information. Even more… we get rid of the time-consuming need to update maps of operation manually.
We determine the exact location of the fire line and use different data (dryness and type of forest, speed and direction of wind etc) to predict how the fire will spread and suggest the most effective ways to stop it. Using KrattWorks system can significantly reduce costs of disaster and save lives.
Early detection grid
To be better prepared for wildfire outbreaks we recommend installing KrattWorks early detection grid – a network of KrattEye cameras attached to cell towers in areas with a high risk of fire. Cameras use machine vision to detect smoke and triangulate the location of the fires instantly. This area will then be investigated closely by the nearest KrattWorks UAV at the earliest opportunity.

Our first product is a smart UAV payload with machine vision and AI to help detect and extinguish forest fires before the situation gets out of control.
KrattWorks system consists of a mobile communication module, autopilot and artificial intelligence. It allows us to operate drones over an unlimited distance in mobile cellular network, use machine vision and AI on the drone and distribute aerial data to multiple users via central server connection.
KrattEye is an electrooptical detection device with mobile broadband connectivity.
Airborne module comes with a 2 or 3 axis gimbal and is designed to give UAVs machine vision capabilities.
Stationary module comes with a 2 axis gimbal and is designed to be used on cell towers to monitor large areas for smoke detection.
KrattLink is a smart IoT device consisting of a mobile communication module, autopilot and artificial intelligence. It allows you to operate drones over an unlimited distance in mobile cellular network, use machine vision and AI on the drone and distribute aerial data to multiple users via central server connection.
