TRIFLUORO METHYL IODIDE (CF3I) AS A HALON 1301 REPLACEMENT FOR FUEL TANK INERTION APPLICATIONS

Abstract

The search for a replacement to the highly effective and safe Halon 1301 agent has yielded the development of CF3I, its iodine analog, as a safe, and equally efficient replacement for explosion mitigation applications in military aircraft. Live fire tests conducted by the USAF yielded protection to standard offensive small weapons threats to the fuel tank of the F-16 weapon system equivalent to that of Halon 1301 systems. CF3I is a drop-in replacement for the F-16 fuel inertion system thus reducing the retrofit cost of implementation.
