The Department of Defense's Next Generation Fire
Suppression Technology Program (NGP) has completed its
sixth year of research with a goal to develop and
demonstrate technology for economically feasible,
environmentally acceptable and user-safe processes,
techniques, and fluids that meet the operational
requirements currently satisfied by halon 1301 systems
in aircraft. Research to complete a suite of suppressant
screening tests has been completed. Research on new
flame suppression chemistry, new and improved aerosol
suppressants, improved suppressant delivery, and
viability of new suppressant technologies has produced
substantive results. The NGP is supported by the DoD
Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program
