Research Projects

The project at a Glance

The vast majority of experience with in situ burning (ISB) is with terrestrial spills which can be ignited by hand using simple tools (e.g., flares, drip torches, or breakable bottles of gelled gasoline)... more

Key Goals of the Project

The objective of this research project is to develop improved ignition systems to facilitate the use of ISB in offshore arctic environments by extending offshore reach and shrinking response times... more

Scope of Work

The objective is to develop an integrated herder delivery and ignition system to allow both functions to be employed in one flight without landing or hovering to pick up another load... more
