Fire Integrated Real-Time Intelligence System Program (FIRIS) is an all-hazard resource utilizing cutting-edge sensors and substantial computing power mounted on crewed fixed-wing aircraft to provide immediate enhanced information within minutes of arriving on the scene of an emergency incident anywhere in the State of California. Collected data is directly shared with a ground-based supercomputer and fusion center that displays real-time incident intelligence. Within seconds, this intelligence is simultaneously distributed in a common operating platform directly into the hands of first responders on-scene, coordination leaders, policymakers, law enforcement, and others to make more effective decisions to protect life, property, and the environment.

  • Two King Air multi-engine, fixed-wing aircraft First responders on scene access intel via smartphone/device
  • Air Tactical Group Supervisors (ATGS’s) implement program operational activities
  • On duty, Fusion Manager coordinates, communicates, and supports program activities through:
  • University of California, San Diego WIFIRE supercomputer provides real-time fire modeling and prediction
  • The common operating platform known as Next-Gen SCOUT powered by Intterra, provides viewing/sharing intel statewide
  • Available throughout California
    Intel 12 is based in Northern California at Sacramento/McClelland
    Intel 24 is based in Southern California at Chino Airport
