Flamingo is a guided civil bomb that flies completely autonomously through the merger of INS / GPS and other sensors. With a load of 200l retardant or extinguishing agent, allows both, direct firefighting and chemical firewall creation. Flamingo is composed of two main elements, the control unit; which integrates Veronte technology and is responsible for the functions of guiding, navigation and control, and the suppression unit; a housing for the extinguishing agent. It also incorporates a recovery mechanism that allows the separation of the control unit which releases a parachute just before impact, allowing the recovery of this component. The system is designed for use from cargo aircrafts, not being necessary a modification of the aircraft for using it. To do this, the system has a release mechanism fully compatible with standard 463L pallets. Flamingo offers several advantages over usual means of extinction:
  • Night operation
  • Performance in inaccessible areas
  • Water encapsulation
  • Accurate distribution of suppressant
  • Performance in adverse weather conditions and strong winds.
  • Keep human resources away from fire.
  • Fast reaction.
  • Multipurpose aircraft use.
