Related Legislation:


S.2290 - Wildfire Management Technology Advancement Act of 2018; 115th Congress (2017-2018) Cantwell
S.47 - John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act; 116th Congress (2019-2020) Murkowski


Both bills call for the best available technology to enhance effectiveness and cost, minimizing firefighter exposure & increasing the efficient response to wildfires. PCADS fills those requests with a multi patented system that is capable of initial rapid attack, direct attack, suppression & is not grounded due to high winds or at night with our patented HALO Time Delay.  If dive bombs are required for effective coverage with traditional airtankers the danger level will always be high, PCADS forever changes that by being able to deploy at low altitude but from a high-altitude level flight profile using the same aid drop methods the Air Guard and Air Force has been operating for decades.
