A new study conducted by J'son & Partners Consulting aimed to analyze the global and Russian fire robotics markets. The report contains a detailed analysis of the characteristics and capabilities of both mobile (including UAVs) and stationary robotic firefighting equipment. According to the results of ranking by key criteria, analysts of the company carried out a preliminary selection of fire robots for use in the most difficult conditions when extinguishing fires at oil and gas facilities.

 

Prospects for mobile fire robotics in Russia and the world

 

Our country-initiated work on creating multifunctional robotic systems that could operate autonomously or remotely in harsh operating conditions due to the surge in a number of anthropogenic disasters in the 1980s and, above all, after the Chernobyl disaster. Taking into account the need to extinguish fires in radioactively infected areas, chemical industry enterprises and warehouses of explosives in harsh conditions like heavy smoke and air pollution with highly toxic substances, for the first time in domestic and international practice in 1986-1988, a self-propelled fire monitor named SLS-100-54 "Soyka" (“Jay” in Russian) was created. This mobile robotic complex is controlled remotely via radio or wire and considered now the progenitor of all firefighting robots in Russia and determines their hereditary characteristics – first of all, their heavy and super–heavy weight (many tons), tracked chassis and increased protection that pushes the potential boundaries of their use as far as possible.

 

At the same time, the tragic experience of eliminating anthropogenic disasters has also become one of the main factors that determined Russia's leadership in the development of firefighting robotic systems, which tend to be designed as heavy reconnaissance robots, while the rest of the world tends to create lighter robots. Heavy complexes are used for extinguishing forest fires, ammunition depots, other dangerous areas like oil and gas facilities, etc. Light firefighting robots usually also have tracked chassis. They are quite maneuverable and compact in size, which allows them to pass through doorways and move along staircases inside of buildings. Such robots are equipped with fire monitors that are connected through sleeves to external water sources and water irrigation devices for their own protection from high temperatures. They are capable of directing a water jet or air-mechanical foam to fire at a distance of tens of meters. Their use is justified in conditions of excessive risk for fire brigades; in particular, not long ago, when extinguishing a fire in the Parisian Cathedral of Notre Dame French fire robots Colossus were used.

 

Historically, Russia has been a pioneer and the largest player in the segment of mobile robotic firefighting. Only China can compete with Russia in this regard and only in the segment of light and medium-sized fire robots.

This J’son & Partners Consulting study includes the following objectives: a review of existing samples of robotic fire extinguishing equipment from Russian and foreign manufacturers, its classification and analysis of its compliance with the regulatory framework. The analysts made a rating on the basis of key criteria, which were reduced to several summarizing indices. They took into account, first of all, explosion protection as one of the key indices for extinguishing fires at oil and gas facilities, as well as mobility and battery life. Another key index was the distance of remote control (and in exceptional cases, the ability to work in fully autonomous mode), the availability of additional equipment (cameras, sensors, attachments), and the availability of operating certificates.

 

In general, the study included 69 models of mobile firefighting robots from 22 countries (Russia and China are the market leaders by a number of models). The analysts conducted a detailed analysis of the technical characteristics of the most mature models (the key criteria in this analysis were their commercial readiness and explosion protection). As a result of the selection, 27 models from 10 countries remained on the shortlist. And the first position of the rating table was given to the Special Fire Engine manufactured by Omsktransmash. The top 10 positions were occupied by: 4 Russian, 5 Chinese, and 1 French model of firefighting robots.

 

At the same time, it is worth noting that all these years the best models of Russian mobile robots of medium and light class were created using the experience of foreign countries, in particular Austria, Croatia, and China. Therefore, the biggest barrier to the development of domestic fire robotics for this period are various sanctions-related restrictions on the supply of components and finished products from the above-mentioned EU countries. However, this does not interfere with fruitful cooperation with Chinese fire robots’ developers.

 

Stationary fire extinguishing equipment

 

Paragraph R 53326-2009 of the Russian State Standard defines a robotic triad of stationary fire extinguishing means as "fire monitor – robot – installation". In this part, the Russian standards differ from the Western regulatory framework, in which the concept of "robot" or "robotic" is not usually used in relation to stationary firefighting equipment. In Western countries, a robot is considered a device that moves independently or is controlled by a person at a distance, i.e. mobility is a defining feature. Abroad they usually distinguish another triad ecosystem of stationary fire extinguishing means:

 

- Remote-controlled fire monitors (according to J'son & Partners Consulting estimates, about 50% of all fire monitors on the market are remote-controlled)

 

- Fire alarm systems

 

- Automated fire fighting control systems

 

Due to the wide variety of solutions from the first two categories (hundreds of models from dozens of manufacturers), J'son & Partners Consulting analysts focused on automated firefighting control systems.

 

The analysis showed that the technological level of Russian products is almost equal to that of foreign analogs. The difference between the domestic and Western markets for stationary firefighting equipment is the structure of the market. While the Western market is saturated with high-tech companies that manufacture such equipment, the Russian market has a much higher level of monopolization. The dominant position in our market is occupied by only one manufacturer, which actively participates in the formation of the regulatory framework/standards in its segment.

 

Working on the demonopolized market, foreign manufacturers of automated control systems often declare the invariance of their solutions to specific types of fire monitors and fire alarm devices, which gives a wide scope for the architecture of the most complex modern fire extinguishing systems for any extreme conditions and allows to take into account any customer's wishes.

 

Prospects for using UAVs to extinguish fires

 

As for the third segment of the market, in the world, there are not more than two dozen UAV models that can directly participate in firefighting. Even abroad, against the background of the rapid development of various unmanned vehicles, fire UAVs are not perceived as a serious trend. Only the American concern Lockheed Martin is trying to support this investment direction, even despite the existing legal restrictions in the United States. If we talk about Russia, the study presents two initiative projects of fire UAVs at the prototype stage and one concept that does not yet have a real implementation. Against this background, the project of a heavy unmanned platform designed by one of the Russian manufacturers stands out. Its successful flight tests and potential availability of a manufacturing base allows to hope for the appearance of a really useful heavy fire UAV in our country.

 

Speaking about the barriers that hinder the development of unmanned firefighting equipment in the world, first of all, it is necessary to note legal restrictions. So far, the contradiction between the lengthy procedure for approving the UAV flight conditions and the need for a rapid departure of a fire drone in the event of an emergency looks unsolvable all over the world. The high dependence on weather conditions also affects the operation of such fire drones. According to experts' calculations, the possibility of using regular UAVs of the EMERCOM of Russia in emergencies in bad weather conditions is only 5%. Another obvious deterrent is the still unresolved issue of safety in the joint use of UAVs and manned aircraft in emergency zones. For example, American pilots of fire tankers refuse to fly in clouds of smoke near drones. In the Russian Federation, apparently for the same reasons, the EMERCOM regulations as of the end of 2019 did not consider the possibility of firefighting using UAVs.

 

At the end of 2019, there was no reason to believe that there was any serious use of UAVs in firefighting, not only in Russia but also in the world as a whole. So far, the participation of UAVs is limited only to monitoring and reconnaissance functions, which are occasionally performed by conventional UAVs that are not specialized for work in emergency situations.
