Description

A two year study of the Mark II Aerial Ignition System has resulted in a determination that it is an effective, accurate, safe, and economical means to aerial ignite forestry tracts for prescribe burning or wildfire control. The versatility and speed of the system allow for maximum use of good burning weather. Sections of the report cover system operation, installation, ignition pattern, malfunctions, firing techniques, cost, and safety.
