Abstract (en)

The invention relates to a fire suppression system for a substantially enclosed area (10). The system comprises: a plurality of solid propellant aerosol generators (22, 24) disposed about the enclosed area for exhausting a fire suppressant aerosol that is substantially void of an ozone depleting material into the enclosed area. Each aerosol generator includes an ignition element for igniting the solid propellant thereof to produce the fire suppressant aerosol. Each ignition element of the aerosol generators is coupled to a fire control unit (102) which is operative to ignite the solid propellant of at least one aerosol generator utilizing the ignition element thereof to produce and exhaust the fire suppressant aerosol into the enclosed area.
