Oshkosh Airport Products to Feature Striker 8×8 and Striker Simulator at China Fire 2019

Oshkosh Airport Products, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) Company, announced today that the company will be represented at China Fire 2019 to be held at the China International Exhibition Centre in Beijing on October 16-19. Oshkosh Airport Products will showcase products and technology including the new Oshkosh® Striker® 8×8 ARFF vehicle and Striker Simulator.

Custom-engineered to deliver rapid response, the Striker 8×8 reaches 50 mph (80 kph) in less than 20 seconds with fewer emissions. The Striker 8×8 display will highlight the vehicle’s ability to not only meet but exceed NFPA, ICAO, and EU standards. Oshkosh has delivered 10 Oshkosh Striker 8×8 ARFF vehicles with premium features to the brand-new Beijing Daxing International Airport. The airport opened on September 25, 2019, just six days before the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.

Oshkosh Airport Products has a long history serving airport rescue and firefighting teams in China, as our products are currently protecting 65 of the major and mid-size airports across the country. “We are honored to work with the fire department at the Beijing Daxing airport and are committed to delivering world-class customer experience,” said Erik Lampe, vice president and general manager of Oshkosh Airport Products. “Our Striker 8×8 and Striker Simulator display at China Fire gives attendees the opportunity to learn about the superior attributes of the apparatus. It also allows us to gather first-hand feedback and learn about the unique needs of those who use our equipment.”

In addition to the Striker 8×8 display, the Striker Simulator offers attendees an opportunity to experience one of the first virtual resources for training firefighters. It was developed specifically for airport rescue and firefighting teams to simulate real-life situations, and to properly use the critical equipment that helps save lives. The system incorporates video footage and illustrated environments of Striker trucks (4×4, 6×6, and 8×8) in action, with views both inside and outside the cab, along with a full audio track. 

Oshkosh Airport Products representatives, products, and technology will be present at Oshkosh’s booth (at booth E2-9) at China Fire 2019.
