The (vertical) impulse-launching method combined with aerial delivery (e.g. by drones or copters) is one of the most efficient fire-fighting methods, being 10…50 times more efficient (in terms of spending the extinguishing agent per m2) than the traditional pouring of water from aircrafts. By using the modern facilities of navigation and direction, the whole system is working as the integrated, pin-point accurate, very practical and powerful tool. This system will be absolutely useful and even indespensable by fighting fires in hilly or swampy forest tracts, in dangerous industrial zones, on sea vessels etc.
The essential characteristics of these Systems:
Due to the very high flexibility of the system, the range of size and power of the particular devices can be extremely large.

How it works
In order to meet the requirements of suitability and efficiency the system has to be built up as an integrated one. According to the concrete set of the devices (the fleet of the carriers available, the set of the containers etc.) and to the character of the fire certain (standard) programs/patterns of operation (logistics & fire-fighting) will be applied. The operating system is integrated via GPS. Using remote control it is possible to effectively apply the coordinated relocation of the carriers, to transfer (for analysing) the data from the observation drone(s), to initiate the triggering of the containers in the determined height diapason (usually 10…20m) etc.
If applied the fleet of carriers consisting of drones only it is possible to operate effectively the whole system from the remote centre, which is potentially the most efficient way to conduct this operation. And certainly it is the safest way, because it will not put human life at risk.
