Dubai launches Dolphin water jetpack system for firefighting from the air

Reports from an article published by the ABC show how Dubai is taking firefighting to new heights, quite literally, with their introduction of a water jet pack system called ‘Dolphin’. You can view a video of the Dolphin in action on the ABC website (link above).

Alongside the Dolphin is the Martin Jetpack being looked at as an option to reach those tricky areas safely as it can be both unmanned and controlled remotely, or manned on the system.

As the heat from a fire goes up, I am not quite sure about this one but it is clearly worth a look for areas where it is extremely difficult to get to.
