This report presents the results of two years of
research in support of the objective to identify and
make ready for use the optimal near-term fluid to
replace halon 1301 for in-flight fire suppression in
aircraft engine nacelles and dry bays. At the time the
work presented in this report was begun, the Technology
Transition Team of the sponsors, the Air Force, Army,
Navy, and FAA, had selected the following candidates for
consideration: [see p. 624]. The NIST research results
in Part 1 of this report were directed at helping to
reduce each of these lists to a single chemical. The
results in Part 2 are to assist in the development of
engineering design criteria and suppressant system
