The Campbell Prediction System (CPS) is used to predict potential fire behavior of a wildland fire. CPS is used to adjust tactics and strategies to ensure the safety of firefighters and the effective use of resources. As a learning aid, this application lets you interactively adjust a fire's environment and conditions so that you can see how these affect the fire's behavior. CPS is a NetBeans 6.9.1 platform application with a 3D terrain viewer using the NASA WorldWind Java SDK and JOGL.

The CPS downloads and source code are available at Project Kenai [cps.kenai.com]. Alternatively, downloads are also available at SourceForge [sourceforge.net/projects/emxsys]
