With clear flying whether last week we were able to capture clear images from the Thomas Wildfires in Ventura, CA.
With the skies finally starting to clear over Ventura, CA we are tentatively scheduled to fly an expanded Area of Interest (AOI) tomorrow, December 20th. If all goes according to plan we will have data available by end-of-week if not sooner.

As the Ventura wildfire continues to spread we are treating doing a full re-collection/flight as a day-to-day situation.
According to FEMA the fire has grown by 11.5k acres – now at 267.5k acres. The good news is the fire is 40% contained which is 5% better than the last update.
We will continue to provide updates until we are able to fly this site again.
The bad news – conditions were not good enough to re-fly the Ventura fires today.
The good news – conditions are improving and we hope to have the Area of Interest (AOI) re-flown Wednesday.
We will continue to provide updates as the situation develops. Feedback on AOIs is appreciated at
