Using robots in hazardous situations is something that has saved countless lives and as our technology evolves will no doubt save many more. Knowing this, FireDrake Industries designed a robotic “firefighter” to help keep our loved ones out of danger.

The FireDrake Mobile Monitor was designed with 1 thing in mind; How to keep people at a safe distance while still being an effective tool. To accomplish this, the Monitor uses a high pressure pump that can move up to 500 gallons of water per minute combined with an adjustable nozzle to give the operator exactly the spray pattern needed.

The Monitor can be operated remotely from up to 1000 feet away and the drive train as designed to be able to pull heavy duty hoses well out of operating range with little or no help from the operator.
