Tactical Aerial Wildfire Operations
MAG operates, deploys, and maintains manned and unmanned aircraft that provide aerial fire surveillance (detection and mapping) and airspace management (air attack/lead plane) services. We provide civilian customers the full spectrum of aerial fire services: pilots and mission systems operators; maintenance for the aircraft, sensors and mission equipment; logistics and support; and site and program management. Multi-intelligence data collection and processing/exploitation/dissemination services include electro-optical infra-red (EO/IR) full motion video (FMV), LIDAR, and multispectral and hyperspectral imagery (MSI/HSI).
MAG provides a combination of technical, tactical, and intelligence expertise that is complemented by a customer-focused approach. Our experience and understanding of complex tactical aerial wildfire operations missions maximizes on-task time and minimizes inefficiencies and administrative waste.
MAG is driven and guided by our core values of Serve-Win-Perform
MAG enhances intelligence collection through optimized TCPED concepts on all our ISR programs
The key to successful ISR activities is an ISR plan that is developed based on well reasoned analysis, driven by your requirements, focused on your directed tasks, and tied to your anticipated decisions or intended actions.
We are fundamentally about ensuring the right sensors are positioned at the right place at the right time to provide the right feedback about activities within your area of operations.
We work to shorten the collection cycle on board the aircraft and with mission analysts on the ground. This enables us to improve performance and dictate favorable outcomes for you.
High resolution imagery is only the beginning. Instead of focusing entirely on advanced sensors and integrating new phenomenology, which can actually impede dynamic operations, we look at how we treat information once we have it.
We analyze collected information and present products, conclusions, or projections regarding the operational environment in a format the enables you to achieve situational understanding.
