Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari today witnessed the demonstration of Fire Detection and Suppression System, FDSS developed by the Defence Research and Development Organization for Passenger Buses at DRDO Bhawan in New Delhi. Demonstrations were given on Water-Mist-Based FDSS for Passenger Compartment and Aerosol Based FDSS for engine fire. They were also briefed about the various other programs and systems.

DRDO’s Centre for Fire Explosive and Environment Safety, CFEES in Delhi has developed the technology, which can detect the fire in passenger compartment in less than 30 seconds and then suppresses it in 60 seconds thereby reducing the risk to life and property to a significant extent. The FDSS for passenger compartment comprises of a water tank of 80-litre capacity, a 6.8-kilogram nitrogen cylinder pressurized to 200 bar installed at appropriate location in the bus and a network of tubing with 16 number of atomizers inside the passenger compartment. The FDSS for engine comprises of aerosol generator with which the fire suppression could be achieved within five seconds of the system activation.

CFEES has unique competency in the areas of fire risk assessment, fire suppression using different extinguishing mediums, modelling and simulation. They have developed system for Battle tanks, ships and submarines.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh appreciated the innovative accomplishment of the team of scientists.
