    Title:Night operations for wildfire water delivery using Coulson's Firewatch airborne command and control system
    Researcher(s):Jim Thomasson (Lead)
    Abstract:This project was commissioned by Coulson Aviation to have an independent third party observe and document a series of demonstration flights and produce a report outlining results. The concept demonstrated was a coordinated night water delivery operation using a command and control aircraft with night vision goggles (NVG) and infrared (IR) capability to identify, record, and designate hotspot targets with a laser, and a heavy helicopter flown with NVG to drop water.
