TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Working with NASA, our original parent company, Orbital Technologies Corporation, developed propulsion systems that blasted spacecraft beyond the stratosphere and formulated propellants to fuel them.
Throughout that process, we developed an understanding of high pressure fluid flows through nozzles dealing with extremely high temperatures and rapid cooling. As we further developed this technology for the space industry, it became obvious that it had a more down-to-earth (but no less awe inspiring) application for firefighters.
APPLYING TECHNOLOGY TO FIGHTING FIRES
This led to more than a decade of research, with HMA Fire engineers working side by side with scientists at the Air Force Fire Research Laboratory at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida. This extensive research and development effort led to the creation of ultra-high pressure technology for fighting fires.
GAINING REAL-WORLD TESTING AND VALIDATION BY FIREFIGHTERS
Frontline firefighters like you brought their expertise to the development of HMA UHP technology and products. And HMA Fire apparatus have been field-tested on real-life structural, engine, fuel and wildland fires by firefighting professionals.
HMA FIRE TODAY
From our headquarters in Fall River, Wisconsin, HMA Fire continues to be at the forefront of developing technologies and apparatus that make fighting fires safer and more efficient. Our current focus is on the introduction of suppression systems that integrate with every apparatus and every platform.
