Abstract. The physical model of Water Capsule Flight is relatively simple but analytically unsolvable. The input data includes the mass of the capsule, velocity, altitude, aerodynamic coefficients of the capsule, and horizontal and vertical winds. The ABC optimization is focused on those attributes. This article is a part of the series dedicated to Inspired by Nature Methods of AI and their implementation in the mechatronic systems. A bag filled with water is an excellent source of explosion-produced water spray which can be used for extinguishing large fires or for other purposes. The paper presents theoretical models of flight of a bag filled with water, dropped from an aircraft moving horizontally. Results of numerical computations based on this model are compared with results of measurements for the trajectory of a bag dropped from a helicopter. A description of the experimental and numerical setup for this experiment are also discussed.
