|Abstract:||Ballistic threat-induced fires are a major contributor to aircraft vulnerability. This paper describes a recent investigation of new concepts for powder panels, an old alternative for discharging dry chemical agents to extinguish combat-induced fires in aircraft dry bays. Powder panels lining a dry bay can provide passive, lightweight, effective fire protection against ballistic impact by releasing powder into the fire zone to inert the space before the adjoining fuel spills into the space and is ignited by incendiaries.|
