Watch the K-Max unmanned helicopter from Lockheed Martin and Kaman successfully lift and drop more than 24,000 pounds of water to extinguish a fire. During this recent demonstration, the Indago quad rotor drone was used to identify the hot spots and provide data to an operator who directed the full size unmanned K-MAX to the target. The demonstration signifies how an unmanned team can aid in traditionally manned operations for safer fire fighting operations.
