NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Remote control operational capability would be highly useful in hazardous operations, such as chemical spill cleanup situations. The Phase 1 work will demonstrate the utility of the small crawler tractor (SCT) for wildfire management and control operations, and lead to a design aimed specifically at wildfire management and control applications. The SCT offers high potential for other forest applications as well, such as campsite and hiking trail development and maintenance. The range of attachments that will be available will extend the SCT utility range to many other agricultural and non-agricultural applications.
