There is a quite large number of equipments on the market to convert quickly helicopters and aircraft into water bomber. We want to add our ideas to this to imporove the safety of water bombing operations and to increase the effiency of the firefighting. This no only comprises new water bombing devices but also comand & control equipment, software and sensors to assist the airborne activities.
The aerial firefighting has often been a resort for improvised solutions depending more on the skill of the pilots, the mechanics and some clever engineers, which used decommissioned equipment because of the low budgets. This will not be enough in the future, because wildfires have become a very serious problem in many areas. Much more money and efforts have to be spent in the future into this problem – vital for all of us.
