“Great to see three of the exciting companies involved in the Peregian Digital Hub’s FireTech Connect program getting showcased on the news.”

Fireball.International, based out of the Hub, use machine learning algorithms with satellites and ground-based sensors to do instant detection of bushfires starting.

Helitak Fire Fighting Equipment, based in Noosaville, have created the industry’s leading aerial fire suppression system – dropping huge loads of water from helicopters, with high accuracy, on bushfire blazes.

BIA5 Pty Ltd, based on the Sunshine Coast, have created Ozbot – an all-terrain robotic firefighting platform which can get close to the source of a blaze and extinguish it.

Our FireTech Connect program helps promising companies develop their commercial capabilities to speed up the adoption of their powerful technology solutions by emergency response agencies.
