Abstract : Currently, fire protection in electronic and computer facilities is provided by full flooding Halon or water sprinkler systems. These systems are expensive and/or damaging to electronic equipment. An original, compact, portable, automatic extinguisher and alarm unit for local extinguishment, such as waste receptacles, is described. An acoustic receiver which detects the alarm and provides fire department notification is also described. Environmental, component, and system testing is discussed and test data presented. This report is divided into two volumes. Volume I consists of the text, and Volume II consists of appendices. (Author)
