USE OF ROCKETS AGAINST FIRES IN AIRPORT AREAS
An account is given of a continuing study undertaken for evaluating the feasibility of the concept of using a number of rockets, controlled by a computerized aiming system, for crash fire fighting in airport areas in a very short time. Following a general discussion of some possible vehicle configurations and system operating modes, a specific solution based on small ballistic rockets is considered in particular. Details are given of a simulation study being still in progress, intended for providing the major specifications for the system components performance with respect to efficacy reliability and safety requirements.
