Computing Devices Commercial Group, in co-operation with the Canada Department of Forestry, Forest Fire Research Institute, undertook the design, assembly and field test of one developmental model remote, automatic reporting, forest fire weather station system. The equipment consisted of one Master and one Satellite Station which was field operational and suited for basic design and accuracy proving. Final design, operational modification and packaging to be considered subsequent to field tests.
The design, assembly and field test were successfully completed prior to September, 1960. Minor technical and operational problems were encountered with either on-site corrections or solution documentation for subsequent incorporation.
The Company has since reviewed and revised the basic technical and operational design, established specification, and has initiated a program which will result in production Systems for summer 1969 user delivery.
