International Aircraft Systems Fire Protection Working Group

New Additions / Downloads

Introduction

The International Aircraft System Fire Protection Working Group was established as the International Halon Replacement Working Group in October 1993. This working group meets twice per year. One meeting is held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, area and one meeting is held at a host organization at another location. This group originally developed minimum performance standards and test methodologies for non halon aircraft fire suppression agents/systems in cargo compartments, engine nacelles, hand held extinguishers, and lavatory trash receptacles. The groups focus has been expanded to include all system fire protection R&D for aircraft.

Meeting topics include minimum performance standards for aircraft handheld extinguishers, cargo compartment fire suppression systems, and engine nacelles. Halon replacement agents for these areas are also discussed, which includes fuel tank explosion protection (including fuel flammability, nitrogen inerting, other methods of explosion protection) , OBIGGS/OBOGS, fire protection in hidden areas of the aircraft, and fire detection R&D.

This working group is open to anyone in the international community in industry, government, and academia with an interest in aircraft fire protection systems. See below for past meeting minutes and next meeting details.
