AbstractTelemetry will be coming into wider use in wildland fire control because it provides the real-time information needed in decision-making. Two applications are described: transmission of airborne infrared imagery of the fire scene, and the relaying of meteorological data from remote stations. Experimental systems using these types of telemetered data are being developed at the USDA Forest Service's Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. Also under development are computerized models using telemetered and other information for predicting fire behavior.
