ARFF Technology Advancements Improve Aviation Safety and Efficiency

ARFF (aircraft rescue and fire-fighting) crews conduct lifesaving work daily as they face harsh conditions and hazardous scenes.

When navigating the complex environment of an aircraft emergency scene, equipment choice doesn’t just matter; it saves lives. Selecting apparatus with the right specifications and technology features allows crew members to focus on the mission at hand.

What are some of the latest ARFF apparatus and technology advancements that will improve the safety and efficiencies of airport fire departments? Let’s review the newest features of the most advanced ARFF fire apparatus available today.

The Oshkosh® Striker® 4×4, 6×6, and 8×8

In early 2021, Oshkosh Airport Products introduced the next- generation Oshkosh Striker ARFF with innovative technology systems for 4×4, 6×6, and 8×8 configurations. The fire apparatus retained its remarkable legacy features, with newly upgraded features to maximise innovation in the runway response industry.

The new Striker ARFF vehicle has an optimised cockpit, updated body styling, and advanced mobility, vehicle performance, and response flexibility. With this apparatus, aircraft rescue and firefighting crews can take on hazards with extreme precision in the most unforgiving conditions.

Known as the most capable ARFF vehicle ever built, the Striker 8×8 reaches 50mph (80km/h) in less than 20 seconds with fewer emissions while exceeding NFPA, ICAO, and EU standards. The operator-friendly cab is virtually interchangeable with the Striker 4×4 and Striker 6×6 models.
