Hughes Technical Center, the operator of the Rosenbauer Panther Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) research vehicle positions the piercing nozzle of the high-reach extendible turret (HRET) at the window of the L-1011 test aircraft. Research conducted with this vehicle develops improved technologies in aviation firefighting, which will help future passengers survive in the event of a crash or other aircraft accident.
