Troops rely on their confidence in the fire protection system to stay inside the vehicle when combat occurs.  A fire inside an armoured fighting vehicle caused by enemy fire can rapidly grow to engulf areas that are covered with fuel and produce high intensity heat radiation, smoke and the risk of an internal explosion. Our Automatic Fire Extinguishing System (AFES) detects fires and explosions, including ‘slow growth’ fires and will automatically initiate the high speed suppression system to extinguish the fire or explosion and provide survivability for the personnel within the vehicle. Engine bay systems are also available to rapidly detect and extinguish any fires that may occur as a result of overheating in combat or from enemy fire.
