The Hi-Fly Cargo evacuation drone took part in demonstration flight tests in the Moscow region, simulating various real-life fire outbreaks.
The flights were part of the 85th-anniversary celebrations of All-Russian Research Institute for Fire Protection (VNIIPO) of the Russian Emergencies Ministry and were conducted under a partnership between the Ministry and Biruch Innovation Centre
VNIIPO is a key expert in firefighting with vast experience in testing innovative technologies and their certification. Therefore, cutting-edge technologies and equipment were showcased at the institute's anniversary. One of them - Hi-Fly Cargo - was developed by the Biruch Innovation Center
For an objective assessment of the capabilities of Hi-Fly Cargo, in addition to the existing infrastructure, we built several fire towers at our innovation centre, bought equipment, and are designing a full-scale test site.
Working with the Emergencies Ministry will enable us to test various firefighting systems and assess the stability and applicability of aircraft in real-time execution of emergency response tasks”.
