In case the use of retardant is required a reservoir will be installed which injects the basic ingredients in the holding tank before the scooping sequence starts.
Roll-on roll-off platform
Scodev International and the consortium partners are developing a roll-on roll-off cargo platform which comprises the SCODEV scooping device, the reel, the launch- and capture mechanism, the holding tank with a high-speed filling system, the control system for the co-pilot and the relevant applications. The dropping of the extinguishing water takes place through large ducts on the ramp door. This ro-ro platform can be shifted into a military or a private aircraft from a flat cart and (after an initial modification of the aircraft) can be activated within a few hours.
