Latitude Technologies — Sat Data Into Buckets

Latitude Technologies Corporation has signed an exclusive supply agreement with SEI Industries Ltd.  The agreement covers the integration of real-time sensor gathering, satellite relay and information display technologies for the entire Bambi Bucket® product line.

SEI has been building the most popular firefighting bucket systems since 1982 while Latitude developed the first flight following and data systems for the BC Ministry of Forests and Alaska BLM in 2001. Since then, Latitude has continued to pioneer the science of fire information systems by developing suppressant monitoring technologies for all air tanker types. “Latitude cut their teeth in the forest firefighting business and we feel the combination of both our companies’ expertise will provide innovative and cost effective products for our customers,” said Mark Tayler, General Manager of SEI Industries.
