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 diameter trees and provide an effective tool for reducing the fire hazard in many forests.
