UNL spinout Drone Amplified has devised a drone that conducts fire management stress tests on parklands by dropping small combustible balls filled with glycol on targeted pieces of land.

Drone Amplified, a US-based wildfire management drone developer licensed by University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), has received $500,000 in follow-on seed funding from non-profit venture capital firm Invest Nebraska, Silicon Prairie News reported on Friday.
The transaction was completed in November 2018 but had not been publicly announced.
Founded in 2017, Drone Amplified is commercialising a drone product called Ignis that performs fire management testing on country land on behalf of landowners, public wild park authorities and government agencies.
