Quebec's Approach to the Use of Special Aircraft for Forest Fire Suppression 670230

Their method for transmitting accurate fire location data based on a master grid numerical reference system is described, as well as the water pickup and drop procedure that is part of the design mission. Research currently in the development stage is expected to effect further improvements in forest fire suppression through the use of aircraft.
