Ceramic materials incorporated in fire-fighting concept vehiclePublished on December 8th, 2009 | By: email@example.com
Not in actual production, but Yanko Design is trying to stretch the possibilities with a new type of all-terrain vehicle for forest fire fighters to do recon and actual fire suppression:
To create a homogenous directive towards survivability AMATOYA incorporates state-of-the-art clear aerogel laminated insulation in the windows and bodywork, a dedicated auxiliary water supply to operate a highly efficient, intelligent temperature controlled spray down system, military grade sacrificial thermo ceramic intumescent paints, and a mechanically injected large displacement diesel engine specifically engineered for the unique conditions experienced on the fire ground.
