Abstract : The object of the program was to design and build an operational fire and overheat detection system, which used continuous sensors, PIN sensors, silicon solar cell sensors, and silicon carbide sensors for manned flight vehicles. The system consists of sensitizing modules, detection circuits and logic circuits. Operational capability ranges from -55C to +125C. The system is designed to drive a readout with four separate notations, FIRE, OVERHEAT, FAIL and OK. (Author)
