CONCEPT STUDY: FEASIBILITY OF CHARACTERIZING AIRFIELD. THE HAZARDS OF DEVELOPING ASSIGNMENT CRITERIA FOR FIRE SUPPRESSION RESOURCES
This report presents the results of a project that was undertaken to correlate aircraft fire hazards a ground with some quantified airfield parameters involving aircraft operations. The objectives of this study were to explore the feasibility of: (1) correlating aircraft accident/incident history data with airfield operations data in order to characterize aircraft for hazards which exist in aircraft operations on airfields, and (2) developing the criteria needed to assign crash fire suppression equipment to airfields in a manner that reflects the level of an aircraft fire hazard which exists at a given airfield and by capability of specific equipment to deal with the hazards that actually exist.
