Giving Aerial Firefighters That Extra Edge


Automatic data collection for accurate reporting

AFDAU-T1 accurately, reliably and automatically collects information such as volume filled and dropped, engine starts/stops and aircraft take-offs/landings.


Easy installation and minimal pilot input

AFDAU-T1 is easily installed into your aircraft, and once installed, requires minimal pilot input in a busy cockpit.


Paired with RockAIR, meets NAFC Standard OPS-14 requirements

AFDAU-T1, paired with RockAIR, meets NAFC Standard requirements on tracking, event data collection and messaging.


Data securely stored and displayed with TracPlus

Paired with RockAIR, AFDAU-T1 seamlessly and securely sends operational data through cellular/satellite to your TracPlus account for easy analysis and reporting.


Reliable, accurate and cost-effective

AFDAU-T1 is a cost-effective solution to capturing reliable and accurate operational data.


Ensures contractual compliance

AFDAU-T1 reliably captures aerial firefighting data to ensure contractual compliance and reporting.

“In 2018, we started to trial AFDAU-T1 in one of our BK117's. We had been looking for an alternate and cost-effective solution to meet our contractual firefighting needs and saw the TracPlus/AFDAU-T1/RockAIR combination as a possible solution. We’ve now collected data using AFDAU-T1 through one very busy fire season and the results have been outstanding. We are now planning to upgrade our legacy systems through the fleet.”

Simplify Reporting to NAFC

Paired with the RockAIR, AFDAU-T1 meets NAFC Standard requirements on tracking, event data collection, and messaging

Fill/Drop Event





Events reported automatically to NAFC’s ARENA software include:

  • Real-time GPS position reporting and tracking
  • Engine start/stop
  • Door open/close
  • Takeoffs/landings
  • Fill, start/end of substantive flow, including the volume for each drop

“Our initial results have been far above our expectations. The combination of TracPlus, AFDAU-T1 and RockAIR is cost-effective, yet offers a solution that is head and shoulders above the competition. I am excited to be testing an innovative product built by leaders in the aerial firefighting world.”

Michael Gribble

Founder of Alpine Airwork

“These old systems were hugely costly to purchase, and even more costly to an operator when they fail in the middle of a busy firefighting season. We created AFDAU-T1 to be affordable, easy-to-use, and to reliably capture accurate data to minimize risk of non-payment. With AFDAU-T1, everything is automated.”
