2017 Fire Protection Informational Exchange Meeting

Report No. ARL-MR-0978
Authors: J Kevin Boyd and Steve McCormick
Date/Pages: May 2018; 38 pages
Abstract: US Department of Defense platforms have many components other than stored munitions that are the source of, and are vulnerable to, fires caused by a wide variety of threats. Vulnerabilities resulting from a fire can turn a survivable event into a catastrophic loss of crew and equipment. This report documents the results of an information exchange meeting held May 10–11, 2017 at the US Army Research Laboratory, which brought together interested parties across the armed services to outline, as a community, the current state of the art in fire protection research and engineering and determine where future efforts would be most advantageous. The forum provided the opportunity to strengthen old collaborations, begin new partnerships, and serve as a resource to highlight to potential customers and/or management the importance of continuing efforts in this field.
