The Navy at China Lake has developed many items/ techniques for search and rescue. Sometimes things do go astray. If everything worked perfectly as designed, there would be no need for test and evaluation. Also, look at all the lost and injured hikers, mountain climbers, etc that the Navy at China Lake rescue. The cost of fighting that fire is miniscule compared to the search and rescue costs incured by the Navy each year.
