Description:

The Next Generation Fire Suppression Technology Program (NGP) was initiated in 1997 and this paper presents the progress and results of its sixth year of research. The goal of the NGP is "to develop and demonstrate technology for economically feasible, environmentally acceptable and user-safe processes, techniques, and fluids" with a focus on military aircraft, land vehicles, and ships. Since the main fire suppression system used by the U.S. military is halon 1301, which has been phased out and replaced in many commercial operations, the paper states that continued research in this area is justified. Various chemical compounds used in NGP research are discussed and compared in this paper, as well as delivery methods and technology viability.
