Fire tests were conducted in a turbojet powerplant installation to determine the effectiveness of an Edison and a Honeywell Ultra-violet Fire Detection System. A study of flammability and smoke generation characteristics was performed on different types of litter pads and pillows. Fire resistance tests in a standard 2,000F flame-test environment were conducted on two flexible self-sealing low pressure Aeroquip hoses and an aluminized asbestos-faced flexible fiberglas cloth. An investigation of the vulnerability of JP-4 and JP-8 fuel, contained in a fuel tank, to ignition by incendiary gunfire was made. Modified author abstract
