Halon 1301, CF3Br, has been used extensively to protect
vital Department of Defense systems and facilities from
unwanted fires often caused by enemy attack. The fire
protection for most current weapons systems has been, in
fact, designed around its excellent capabilities.
Because of the chemicals high suppression efficiency,
there has been minimal engineering for optimal
distribution and design concentration.
