Transforming Public Safety Through Advanced Airborne Broadband

The Challenge

Wildland firefighters operating in remote, austere areas suffer from limited or no data connectivity. This gap hinders real-time situational awareness, critical decision-making, and team coordination.

In many places we’re using radio systems that have been around for 50 years.

Quotes from 2023 report: Modernizing Wildland Firefighting to Protect Our Firefighters

Modern vs. Outdated Communications

Our biggest hurdle with all these different technologies is what we call our ‘last mile connection.’ How do we get this data to boots on the ground?...The communication infrastructure is just not there.

Our Vision

Bring broadband connectivity and modern applications to every 5000+ acre wildland fire response.

Rangair is committed to overcoming these obstacles by delivering reliable, high-performance broadband directly to the boots on the ground.


Our adaptive broadband network unifies teams with high-throughput, low-latency data, and unwavering connectivity. It is purpose-built for public safety operations in remote areas using state-of-the-art drone and RF technologies

Seamless Integration and Universal Compatibility

Don’t let technology slow you down. Rangair is universally interoperable with all modern Wi-Fi devices, on the ground and in the air.Our long-endurance mid-altitude drones stay out of your way while delivering pervasive coverage from above the aerial stack.


Our powerful airborne wireless platform combines advanced beamforming Wi-Fi radios and antennas, powerful microwave backhaul, and low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellite bandwidth. This system delivers strong signal levels with the high throughput and low latency needed for modern applications, typically 100Mbps and 50ms.We deploy these technologies in fault-tolerant configurations and use RF, network, and flight trajectory automation to ensure reliable coverage.Our professional pilots directly manage operations 24/7 on-site. Our UAVs fly at 4000-8000 feet AGL in coordination with Air Attack, avoiding conflicts with other traffic.


While our initial focus is on wildfire response, the Rangair platform can bring broadband connectivity everywhere that public safety teams go.
