Abstract:

US Department of Defense platforms have many components other than stored munitions that are the source of, and 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 at the US Army Research Laboratory during 14-15 October 2015, the purpose of which was to bring together the various interested parties across the 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 andor management the importance of continuing efforts in this field.
