The global problem

4 – 5 million
landscape fires

400 – 500 million ha
area damaged

300 000 deaths

500 million tonnes of CO2 emitted
(accounts for 15% global CO2 emissions).

Cost in total annually:  $91 billion

Technology problem

Many rescue teams do not use modern technology at all because it brings more hassle than benefits.

Limited operational range.

Information can not be shared during flight.

Human input necessary for object detection.

Information transformed
to a map manually.

Unfortunately rescue teams have to rely on outdated technology in situations where every wasted minute can cost human lives.

Current off-the shelf drones have short range and aerial data can be processed only after the drone has landed. They are not efficient in time critical situations where large area monitoring is necessary.

Once a landscape fire has reached a certain size, humans cannot stop it. Therefore early detection and rapid situational awareness are keys to stop landscape fires from escalating out of control.

The solution

We eliminate two of the most crucial problems for rescue teams – outdated technology and lack of situational awareness.

Drones monitor the wildfire area and stream data to the server.

We mix surveillance data from drones with satellite imagery, weather maps and other available information.

We generate accurate situational maps in real time and predict behaviour of wildfire for up to 8 hours.

This enables rescue teams to make precise decisions even before the situation begins to escalate.

Our product

Unlimited range of operation within mobile network area.

Real-time data sharing to multiple recipents.

KrattWorks has developed a smart drone controller with a mobile communication module and artificial intelligence.

Machine vision and automated object detection.

Constant situational awareness – broad picture updates automatically.

It allows for operating drones over an unlimited range, using machine vision & AI on the board of the flying drone and distributing the collected data to multiple users in different rescue teams, mission control centre and authorized 3rd parties.

Market opportunity

Our core markets are US, Australia, Canada, Portugal and Greece.

In those markets there are ca
50 000 fire squadrons.

If 4% of them bought 5 units of our first product KrattEye (pricing USD 4999) it would result in revenue of USD 50 million.


KrattEye can be integrated with already existing systems.

Our target sector is where long range UAVs need to share information with multiple users. Our system will also be beneficial for short range / multiple users market.

What makes us unique?

Our software component distinguishes us from the competitors.

Integrating external data, machine vision and AI will change the way drones are used in many sectors.
Our product can be used out of the box with existing systems already the market.


Additional markets

Other rescue activities

Variety of activities from searching for missing persons to global disaster management operations.

Complex security operations

KrattWorks system can be a central unit for a wide area of autonomous surveillance tasks. 

Landscape mapping

KrattWorks system is perfect in situations where satellite imgery is too expencive or image resolution is too low.

Defence industry

KrattWorks AI is able to perform surveillance tasks autonomously which enables it to operate in radio silence.

Infrastructure monitoring

Highways, railroads, shipping routes, construction, power grids need constant monitoring to detect possible flaws or malfunctions.

Marketing & sales strategy

Our sales strategy is to make direct sales to national or local rescue boards and volunteer teams.

Our PRE-SALES marketing strategy is to support the sales process with content marketing activities.

To identify specific market needs we launch interviews with our established local contacts in rescue teams and NGO’s and targeted public Social Media campaign (Phase 0) to monitor feedback.

We launch the next phase (phase 1) of social media and PR activities simultaneously with direct sales process to promote our product by various means. We continue the activities until we close the sales process.

Our AFTER-SALES marketing strategy is to boost new content based on our performance on existing markets.

CHANNELS: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, content marketing in national newspapers and news portals.

Our progress

At the moment our prototype is at  TRL6 level : the autopilot is functional, live video feed and telemetry connection to the server via mobile broadband connections are stable and the back-up connection (2.4 GHz) is also functional. 


We are doing test flights with RTK GPS and gathering aerial data.

We have found initial customers for our autopilot: Cleveron and DefSecIntel have used it for their prototyping. We have established agreements with companies on a core market to test our MVP.

Exit strategy


Retail drone manufacturers are constantly trying to enter commercial UAV market where margins are higher.

Yuneec, Parrot, GoPro, 3DR, Autel, SenseFly, Kespry, Tarot


Big aerospace companies are constantly seeking to innovate their business and enter the unmanned aerial systems field.

Boeing, Airbus


Rescue systems companies are searching for technologies that can be part of their ecosystem.
