who we are
We are a team of engineers, innovators, investors, aerial firefighting and manufacturing experts working together to develop more effective and efficient aerial firefighting system. Created in 2009 our company includes 16 employees and consultants all based in Ontario at our head office in Brampton.
what we do
Our vision is to provide aerial firefighters the best, most advanced, efficient, effective, safe and powerful system to combat large-scale wild fires. We are working with leading experts in aerial firefighting to develop our product. Having studied the old and current aerial firefighting methods and identified the best features from each method we are developing an advanced firefighting technology. Our mission is to develop the next generation aerial fire-fighting system that eliminates the shortcomings and surpasses the features of the current method by providing a system with advantages like pinpoint drop accuracy and fifty to one hundred times more efficiency and effectiveness.
Wildfires have become one of the biggest threats to the environment on all continents. 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. Costs are calculated based on revenue, business and property losses, human suffering, wildlife loss, rehabilitation, cleanup and rebuilding costs.
Current conventional 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.
A helicopter bucket is a specialized bucket suspended on a cable carried by a helicopter to deliver water for aerial firefighting. It is available in many different sizes and features....more
These helicopters are equipped with special designed tank that is attacked to the belly of the helicopter. These tanks have a special design opening controlled valve to allow the operator...more
The air tanker is a fixed wing aircraft with the ability to carry and discharge fire retardant on demand. Aircraft range from single propeller to jet engine. The system varies...more

We are working to develop a system to give firefighters the tools they need to combat fire more accurately, efficiently, effectively and safely. Aerial firefighting technologies are remarkably complex. There are hundreds of factors needed to account for when manufacturing or designing an aerial firefighting system. Airplane structure, aerodynamics, stability, environmental effects on the system and the airplane, firefighting material selection, accessibly, accuracy, efficiency, effectiveness, environmental effect and many more must be given consideration. We have studied the current technology and theoretical aerial firefighting methods and reviewed their advantages and disadvantages. 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.
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.
80% less time to put out a fire than using water
More effective and efficient
Better load drop accuracy
Multi-missions ability: Achieves multiple missions in a single trip
Higher adaptability: Can be used by many aircraft without any major modifications
