Description

The Missoula Technology and Development Center (MTDC) began as the support facility for Forest Service fire management in the late 1940s, when a small group started developing techniques for parachuting men and cargo. In the early 1960s, the center's role was expanded to a Service-wide technical center with a nationwide program that now encompasses all Forest Service equipment needs. Today, MTDC works with Federal and State agencies, universities, private firms, and research groups to meet its responsibilities to resource managers.
