Videos demonstrating the Multi-Link Drop Computer

An article we posted on December 9 described a system being developed by Matt Richardson, an Avionics Systems Engineer with Canaan Avionics LLC, that would electronically designate drop points for firefighting aircraft. While three videos were available that demonstrated the system, Mr. Richardson asked that we not embed them on Fire Aviation, saying they were “a bit esoteric” and only intended for a few people in a federal agency. However, after the article appeared he was contacted by a number of people interested in his work who then saw the videos — and they did not really care about the production quality, Mr. Richardson said. He then said it was OK if we put them on the site. So… here they are.
