The Striker is the ultimate and long-awaited wildland fire suppression system. The Striker is a true force multiplier using a much higher-expansion Class A foam. A single helicopter coupled with a Striker unit delivers many times more suppressant capability compared to others. The high-expansion foam is five times more effective than water alone based upon the USDA Forst Services analysis.
The Striker is designed and manufactured with the environment and nature in mind. It controls wildland fire with only a biodegradable, safe water-based additive that is listed on the USFD Qualified Product List (QPL), and has been thoroughly vetted by the world recognized wildland fire research experts.
SAFE & EASY
The Striker is designed and manufactured based upon pilot and ground crew inputs and their safety in mind. The Striker is equipped with automated systems and features that make it safe to operate while it is easy to load, transport, and use.
UNMATCHED DROP PATTERN & COVERAGE
The Striker drop pattern is unparalleled—no other airborne technology results in foam line length, density, and coverage level. The Striker I Heavy drops 60,000 US gallons of foam per load, yielding form a 3,000 US gallons of 1% foam solution. This drop coverage makes for more effective wildland fire suppression with fewer required flight missions, saving time and money.
HIGHLY VERSATILE & ADAPTABLE
The Striker is easy to use—just Pickup & Fly! It does not require any helicopter modification nor extra pilot training. Based on the fire operation requirements, the Striker fights fire with controlled foam, water, mist, droplets, and water-enhancing aerial drops.
EFFECTIVE & EFFICIENT
Based on the Striker’s high drop volume, extraordinary drop length, and long-lasting foam, the Striker technology is 500% more effective than the traditional aerial firefighting technologies, and significantly reducing the aerial resource demand and cost.
