New equipment, to be used in the fight the Fire Service gives every year with forest fires, has been acquired after the donation of modern extinguishing drones by LATSCO S.L.

The company LATSCO S.L. (Shipping Limited) states in an announcement that, with a sense of social solidarity and being aware of the efforts of the Fire Service personnel so as to deal with the wildfires Greece faced last summer, it decided to provide assistance by donating equipment to the Fire Service.

In the context of this offer, the Fire Service was asked to specify its needs in unmanned means. The equipment requested also included a special need for the supply of SARISA-type unmanned aerial vehicles, each of which includes the MPGS-S3-type aircraft and a ground station, designed and manufactured by the Greek company SAS Technology of the Spirit World Group.

The requested SRS-1C configuration (cargo) is mainly a Cargo Drone, also capable of carrying out a large range of different mission types, such as extinguishing small fires in inaccessible places or extinguishing fires to avoid resurgence.

This special function is being developed by SAS Technology on a pilot basis in collaboration with the Fire Service and SARISA is the first aerial vehicle to incorporate such a function.

The SARISA system was first introduced in DEFEA 2021 and its design has taken into account the operational needs of both the Fire Service and the Armed Forces, which were presented with the said system when it was still in the initial design stages.
