  • Informal Feedback from Fire Season 2015: Wildland Mobile Technology Working Group Request

    We want to hear your thoughts and needs for mobile technologies in fire and aviation management. Your insights improve our situational awareness and allow us to determine requirements we can evaluate for the benefit of the entire fire and aviation management community.

    The term 'mobile technology' refers to a combination of hardware, software, operating systems and networking technologies which utilize cellular/satellite communication. Two examples are smartphones and satellite emergency notification devices such as SPOT messenger.

    Your responses to this electronic form are completely confidential. Your name or email address will never be associated with answers you provide.

    We appreciate your time and feedback.
    - The Wildland Mobile Technology Working Group
    - Chair: Tami Parkinson, tparkinson@fs.fed.us; Co-Chair: Tyler Hackney, thackney@fs.fed.us
