Abstract:

The Department of Defense's Next Generation Fire Suppression Technology Program (NGP) has completed its eighth 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 on new flame suppression chemistry and improved suppressant delivery has produced substantive results. The report includes a description of the research the NGP will perform en route to completing its work in FY2006. The NGP is supported by the DoD Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP).
