The threat of toxic gases and smoke generated by fire aboard spacecraft, surface ships, and submarine compartments is being treated more seriously than it was in the past. Current fire experience indicates that certain “critical” inhabited compartments must be better protected in the future from fire products.
This paper describes Hamilton Standard's smoke removal efforts directed towards the design and development of a self-contained unit which is capable of cleanup of fire combustion products within inhabited closed compartments.
