Abstract : This report provides an evaluation of three gaseous halon alternatives (CEA-410, FM-200, and NAF S-III) and one gas/powder mix (Envirogel) in full-scale machinery space applications. Halon 1301 was also tested to serve as a baseline comparison. The primary objective of this investigation was to evaluate the International Maritime Organization's draft test protocol for gaseous halon alternative fire extinguishing systems. The evaluation focused on various aspects of the test protocol such as compartment configuration, fire scenarios, discharge system parameters, and decomposition product formation.
