Scope:

This AS establishes minimum requirements for halocarbon clean agent hand-held fire extinguishers carried on board civil aircraft. The requirements include: design (cylinder, valve, gauge, mounting equipment), performance (firefighting effectiveness - hidden fire test, discharge test, type, etc.), environmental (ozone depleting/global warming potential, atmospheric life span), and occupant safety concerns (toxicology - seat fire test).

Rationale:

This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) is created in response to a request by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to craft the technical basis for a European Technical Standard Order (ETSO) that addresses International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Assembly Resolution A36-12, regarding the replacement of halon in civil aircraft fire extinguishers. It is intended to identify pertinent hand-held fire extinguisher requirements selected from the broad range of fire extinguisher standards existing across the international community. The goal is to synthesize a single set of requirements specifically applicable to aircraft fire extinguishers.
