    Title:Helicopter-transportable equipment for fireline operations
 
    Year:2010
 
    Status:Completed
 
    Researcher(s):Jonathan Large (Lead)
 
    Abstract:The logging industry in North America has long since made the shift from using manual operators to mechanized equipment, however this trend has been slower on wildfire operations. Although equipment is used on wildfires they often occur in remote, rugged terrain with limited access making it difficult to bring equipment to assist with operations. An increased abundance of medium and heavy lift helicopters coupled with new and existing machines may provide opportunities for mechanized equipment to play an increased operational role. This project aims consider and evaluate potential equipment.
