Wildfire Disasters Wildfires have become a leading worldwide environmental threat.
Wild Firefighting Costs Direct wild firefighting cost $5.1 billion annually in Canada and $3-4.5 billion annually in the U.S. The economic cost of wildfires is $125 billion a year in US dollars.
Current Firefighting Technology Current firefighting technology like bucket and tank system is widely used but suffers from many limitations.

Wildfire


There are approximately 100 fires in a 1,000-square-kilometer area per day, worldwide. Economic costs of wildfires estimated $11.5 billion in Canada and $125 billion in US annually this includes Direct firefighting costs of $.5 - 1 billion annually in Canada and 3 - 4.5 billion annually in US.

Current Technology

There are a few limited aerial freighting methods that come in different iterations. For the most they consist of simply a hanging bucket carried by helicopter, water tank carried by a helicopter or a water tank carried by an airplane. There are also some experimental systems that have limited uses.

Our Project


Based on research we have conceptualized a design that we anticipate will overcome many challenges. We expect that the new product will have advantages over the current systems, the foremost of which is improved load drop accuracy and control.

what we offer

  • Increased load drop accuracy and control
  • 80% less time to extinguish a fire when compared to using water
  • Increased efficiency and effect
  • Ability to achieve multiple missions in a single trip
  • Adaptable to many models of aircraft without major modifications

benefits

We provide significant economic benefits. We will bring 15 high skilled jobs to Ontario, expected to rise to 35 over the next 3 years. Millions of Increased Tax revenue –municipal, provincial, federal and billions in cost reduction of wildfire. Environmental benefits include reducing pollution, preserving forests and protecting animal’s natural habitats. Our product will protect Firefighters and improve their safety. Health risk reduced by massive smoke and heat reduction.

The Mission
