A Wireless, Local Area Network for Remote Control of a Small, Autonomous Forest Equipment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: John R. Canning
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The fire hazard in many forests is increased by small diameter trees which are costly to remove. The technology described in this proposal will allow an operator to monitor and control a number of small, unmanned vehicles. These vehicles will reduce the cost of removing small… More

Development of a Small, Semi-Autonomous Vehicle for Reducing Fuels in Forests

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: John R. Canning
Award Amount: $296,000.00
Abstract:
Human activities have allowed uncharacteristically dense forests of small diameter trees to develop. Fires, which are now suppressed, historically thinned these forests, reducing stand densities by removing weak and suppressed trees. Also, because the species harvested (ponderosa pine western larch,… More
