    Title:Alberta Helitorch Re-design
 
    Year:2016
 
    Status:Current
 
    Researcher(s):Dave Finn (Lead); Roy Campbell
 
    Abstract:Alberta Agriculture and Forestry’s Wildfire Management Branch and the Ignition Working Group have endorsed the development of a replacement helitorch. Existing helitorch inventory has been in service for over 20 years, and based on helitorch life expectancy and the advancements in technology, wildfire management staff decided to explore design improvements and construction of a replacement helitorch prototype. Based on this need, and with the backing of management, the Ignition Working Group channeled a project proposal through Alberta’s Wildfire Management Science and Technology program, and FPInnovations was ultimately assigned to manage the project delivery.
