The goal of the project was to develop a new wildland fire sprinkler capable of stream-height adjustment. A Fire Cobra prototype was built base on a design from a team of University of Alberta Mechanical Engineering students. Through field tests, the prototype was inferior and would require additional modifications to become functional.
A modified rainbird sprinkler was tested and it produced 8 m semi-vertical stream. The conclusions reached from the testing included that is possible to use an attachment kit to modify an existing kit sprinkler and farther engineering would be required to provide for a more streamlined kit design capable of sustaining the desired pressure ranges.
Over the course of the project a new industrial sprinkler called the FireBozz was identified in the market place. The legs of FireBozz can be adjusted to change the stream angle height.
