Status: UNDERWAY

Background

This Safety Enhancement reduces cargo fires through new or revised standards for the construction of standardized and improved cargo containers that include fire-suppression or fire-containment systems. These systems could include:

  1. Improved containers or Unit Load Devices (ULDs) capable of internally containing or suppressing a fire;
  2. Fire containment bags or blankets that would be used to cover palletized cargo or cargo containers; or
  3. Fire suppression systems external to the pallets or ULDs.

These improved containment/suppression systems should be implemented when available.
