AbstractA project was initiated to identify and evaluate options for the protection of an occupied compartment, such as the crew compartment of armored vehicles, from fire and explosion hazards. Several potential extinguishing systems, including hybrid gas generators, were evaluated for their explosion suppression performance in real-scale explosion experiments using a mock-up of an armoured vehicle crew compartment.
