Abstract : The production of halons for use as total-flood firefighting agents ended in December 1993, and a search has been undertaken to develop alternatives. One of these alternatives involves fine particulate or droplet aerosols. A library search has been accomplished by the New Mexico Engineering Research Institute and the University of Florida to identify references to aerosol usage as replacements for Halon 1301 in total-flood firefighting applications. Two main areas were identified--water mists and pyrotechnically generated aerosols. The references identified were included in the Microsoft(TM) Access(TM) USAF/CGET AEROSOL REFERENCE Database, which provides a reference citation, keyword, abstract, and pages for concept development and conclusions as to the potential use of a compound, for each reference. An overview of the technology based on this review was also prepared. This document provides this overview and describes the computerized database and provides a listing of all documents contained in the database.
