Abstract The Air Force Research Laboratory has developed Ultra High Pressure (UHP) fire fighting as a method to reduce the amount of agent and extinguishment time required for fuel fires. Initial work was conducted on a 14 gpm system, but has been scaled up to 300 gpm. The effort included large scale experiments to demonstrate an overall reduction of agent usage to 28% of the amount required using conventional technology. UHP fire fighting is now fully developed and five trucks are being deployed to Air Force fire fighters for familiarization and operational verification. The first production buy is expected to occur in 2010.
