The Department of Defense's Next Generation Fire
Suppression Technology Program (NGP) has completed its
fourth year of research with a revised goal to develop
and demonstrate, by 2005, 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 is virtually complete.
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 has also
completed a scoping study on technologies for improved
fuel tank inertion.
