    Title:Using a portable tower with video cameras for blind-area smoke detection (Chisholm, Alberta)
 
    Year:2009
 
    Status:Completed
 
    Researcher(s):Jim Thomasson (Lead)
 
    Abstract:Although the video camera system designed for the Chisholm Fire Lookout in 2007 and 2008 was successful, researchers were asked if they could design a system that did not depend on CN Rail’s trackside tower. With no other available tower, researchers decided to place the video cameras and the transmission equipment on a portable tower, which they then placed in a strategic location that would ensure good coverage of the blind area as well as an uninterrupted signal to the fire lookout.
