Abstract
In March of 2011 FPInnovations staff traveled to Rainbow Lake to create research plots in a prescribed burn unit. Work was conducted using a Gyrotrac GT-18 rotary mulcher, creating three ‘grid-mulched’ plots along with several ‘control’ lines. The grid-mulched areas are to evaluate their effectiveness as fuel reduction treatments, and the control lines were established to monitor their effect on fire behaviour. Work was completed over a three day period.

Abstract
Ignition specialists with Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) had identified significant operational and reliability issues with the current system and expressed a pressing need for improvement. The Chair of Alberta’s Ignition Working Group asked FPInnovations Wildfire Operations Research to provide a conceptual design for a new aerial-ignition tracking system that addressed the needs and concerns of the ignition specialists. This project was completed under contract for Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development. Please contact Jim Thomasson for more details.

Abstract
One of the latest technological advancements under development is the aerial intelligence-gathering platform. The platform combines geo-referenced images (infrared and colour) with real-time telemetry. Data can be transferred to a fire centre, an incident command post, and hand-held devices. In 2010, FPInnovations conducted an analysis for the British Columbia Wildfire Management Branch to identify the branch’s data collection needs and priorities that might be addressed by this latest technology. This is a directed research project and the results belong to British Columbia Wildfire Management Branch. Please contact Jim Thomasson for details.
