Robotics program flies in to help with wildfires

Travis Bruegger, the senior engineer for the Joint Training and Experimentation Center at the Camp Guernsey Joint Training Center, monitors a test flight of an unmanned aerial vehicle being prepared to help with firefighting efforts at the camp’s North Training Area, July 20, 2012. JTEC is a partnership between the Wyoming National Guard, the University of Wyoming and the Department of Defense’s Joint Ground Robotics Enterprise. Focused primarily on research and design of unmanned vehicles, JTEC is using the Sawmill Canyon Fire to begin tests of air systems to provide civilian agencies an edge against future fires and disasters.
