Title
(EN) OVERLAND CONDUIT SYSTEM AND METHODS WITH APPLICATIONS IN WILDFIRE MITIGATION
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉS DE CONDUIT PAR VOIE TERRESTRE AVEC DES APPLICATIONS DANS UNE ATTÉNUATION DE FEU DE FORÊT
Abstract
(EN) Methods and apparatus for extending lines for carrying fluids or signals are provided. The lines may be used to deliver fluids, signals and/or power. A wide range of applications include fighting wildfires, fire prevention, providing telecommunications and providing power. The apparatus for deploying a line can include an elongated carried part and a plurality of ground contacting parts that are coupled to and movable relative to the carried part. A plurality of actuators distributed along a length of the carried part are operable to move the ground contacting parts relative to one another and/or move the carried part relative to the ground contacting parts. The actuators are distributed over a length of the carried part. The ground contacting parts may, for example be arranged end to end or arranged in a parallel side-by side relationship.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil pour étendre des axes pour transporter des fluides ou des signaux. Les axes peuvent être utilisés pour distribuer des fluides, des signaux et/ou de l'énergie. Une large gamme d'applications comprend la lutte contre les feux de forêt, la prévention du feu, la fourniture de télécommunications et la fourniture d'énergie. L'appareil pour déployer un axe peut comprendre une partie portée allongée et une pluralité de parties en contact avec le sol qui sont couplées à la partie portée et mobiles par rapport à celle-ci. Une pluralité d'actionneurs répartis le long d'une longueur de la partie portée peuvent fonctionner pour déplacer les parties en contact avec le sol l'une par rapport à l'autre et/ou déplacer la partie portée par rapport aux parties en contact avec le sol. Les actionneurs sont répartis sur une longueur de la partie portée. Les parties en contact avec le sol peuvent, par exemple, être disposées bout à bout ou disposées selon une relation côte à côte parallèle.
