FY2001 Annual Report--Next Generation Fire Suppression Technology Program (NGP)



Richard G. Gann


The Department of Defense’s Next Generation Fire Suppression Technology Program (NGP) has completed its fifth year of research with a goal to develop and demonstrate 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 has been completed. 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 is supported by the DoD Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP).
