A review and analysis was performed on the development of the currently fielded Halon 1211 systems and the more recent development of the Halon 1211 alternative systems to determine the historical fire threats and fire fighting requirements. The review revealed that specific Halon 1211 system capabilities have not historically been based on well defined fire threats. In order to develop the specific fire fighting requirements for the Halon 1211 replacement systems, fire incident data for Calender Years 1977-1991 and Fiscal Years 1993-1995 were reviewed and analyzed in terms of the types of fires encountered in the field, severity of the fires, the frequency of occurrence of each type, and the effectiveness of Halon 1211 systems on these fires. Based on these results, the fire fighting requirements and system requirements were developed for shore based and shipboard Crash, Fire and Rescue operations.
