NRL PROCESSOR-AIDED FIRE DETECTION SYSTEM
A series of fire tests has been conducted simulating shipboard environments. During these tests an NRL prototype fire detection system was compared to two commercial fire detectors. The detectors were exposed to various fuel-type fires involving both solids and liquids, and to different humidity and temperature conditions. Comparative results for 100 experiments are presented. The reliability of the detectors is also examined. (Author)
