Government Gone Wild As Defense Contractors Tout UAV Wildfire Drones

 The Scary Part: The Company Touts Further Uses Such As Biological Warfare And Weather Modification!

A Spanish company NITROFIREX proposes a fleet of combat aircraft capable of nighttime wildfire firefighting launched from a mother-ship over a wildfire at night.

Besides the seemingly insurmountable problems and doubtful effectiveness the company is vying for government contracts.
  • FORESTFIRE FIGHTING
  • OTHER FIRES
  • ATOMIC, CHEMICAL or BIOLOGICAL EMERGENCIES
  • WEATHER PHENOMENA (Chemtrails?)
  • HUMANITARIAN AID (conflict and/or inaccessible areas)
  • MILITARY (Future Offensive Air System / Storm Shadow)
  • PESTS and/or SPRAYING of INACCESSABLE AREAS
  • DRUG PLANTATION SPRAYING
  • FIGHT AGAINST OIL SPILLS
  As reported by the company to Europa Press, the prototype unmanned NITROFIREX, which is currently under design, will bring "unique capabilities in the world" as far air assets dedicated to the work of firefighting.leveraging the current technological development of unmanned systems. Specifically, the project consists of unmanned glider containing the extinguishing agent and after being fired from the rear ramp of heavy transport aircraft to autonomously target source of fire to discharge its contents with great precision and flight and recovery to a airbase.

PHASE 1 – LAUNCH
During the first phase of the operation the “Autonomous Propulsed Glider Container” (APGC) is launched mechanically and/or extracted from the cargo hold of the mothership Launcher Aircraft (LA)
PHASE 2 – GLIDE & GUIDANCE
These APGC’s, containing a beneficial cargo, are capable of gliding (with engine at iddle position) and are equipped with a guiding system directing them automatically to the point of discharge.
PHASE 3 – DROP
Transition from APGC into UAV.
On reaching their target the APGC’s drop their load automatically and with great precision.
Then, by taking advantage of this important and sudden loss of weight, they climb rapidly and escape from the hostile zone. This manoeuvre is used as a transition for the following phase of recovery.
PHASE 4 – ESCAPE, RECOVERY & LANDING
Once emptied and removed from the hostile zone, the APGC’s change into UAV’s by means of the power increase of a small engine. They are recovered and automatically land at the operation base of the mother ship

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
