For decades, technology used by the military has enhanced the survivability of military aircraft fuel cells (tanks) during combat. Military aircraft have often encased the fuel cells with layers of fire suppressing agents. Currently, several models of helicopters and some of the most advanced aircraft employ this type of fuel cell protection. The FIRE Panel product, which is patented technology, is the civilian embodiment of the military protection concept.

 

The premise of this protection is that to reach the fuel cell or tank with some object that would puncture or ignite the fuel, it must first pass through the protective wrap containing fire suppressing agent. The puncturing of this protective wrap releases a cloud of fire suppressing powder, which "inerts" the space around the fuel cell/tank, thereby preventing the ignition of the fuel or quickly suppressing a fire.
