Our AEVEX sensor operators support the USFS NightWatch program with our onboard GeoFOCIS software suite and dissemination tools to provide both real time answers to personnel on the ground and post mission intelligence to the agency assets. Here is a glimpse of the Saddleridge Incident, one of 8 missions flown by this 24 hour availability asset. This fixed wing aircraft, whose integration was design by AEVEX E&T, has the long range, agile response time equipped with the right tools that the Forest Service needs to provide quick intel on these high risk areas, especially with elevated wind events that can change the fire dynamic instantly.

AEVEX GeoFOCIS seamlessly integrated hardware and software systems provide real-time, actionable intelligence where and when it’s needed most.

California State Fire Marshall, Thom Porter has praised AEVEX’s infrared mapping combined with fire spread modelling as the future for saving lives and property. AEVEX airborne surveillance and AI capabilities provides crucial information in countless environments.

AEVEX’s position as a leader on the cutting edge of the aerospace industry allows delivery of operationally relevant airborne intelligence solutions along with trusted confidence in their rapid service.

Volunteers from the AEVEX Intelligence Solutions Business Unit Helped Pack 800 Toiletry/Hygiene Packs for Elementary & Middle School Students

Fayetteville, North Carolina, September 20, 2019 — Volunteers from AEVEX Intelligence Solutions gathered with other volunteers recently to help military children at Fort Bragg, NC. The group helped pack 800-toiletry packs or “Bird Bath Kits” as part of the Fayetteville Woodpeckers Community Leaders Program.

The goal of the program is to help supply personal care items to Fort Bragg students who do not have consistent access to these products. The children privately received the kits to provide them with the help they need, without any embarrassment. The kits contained a toothbrush, floss, lip balm, hand sanitizer, tissues, deodorant, hair ties, a small comb and Band-Aids.

As an official sponsor of the Fayetteville Woodpeckers, AEVEX is part of the Community Leaders Program. The program facilitates the team’s investment of time, energy, and resources in support of youth sports and military service members and their families. The program relies on its collaboration with local and national corporations, the Fayetteville Woodpeckers, and the Astros Foundation. The Fayetteville Woodpeckers have modeled the Community Leaders Program after the award-winning initiative of the Houston Astros official team charity, the Astros Foundation.
