20110155397PASSIVE MICROWAVE SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PROTECTING A STRUCTURE FROM FIRE THREATS - An automatic fire suppression system used to provide protection of window glass and other structural elements in aircraft terminals which are exposed to exterior fires caused by natural, accidental, or intentional events comprises a directional passive microwave receiver, a central processor for processing received microwave signals over time and comparing the received signals over time with thermal event signatures stored in memory to selectively actuate a sprinkler system for protecting the window glass in the vicinity of an identified fire event. The memory may further store a model of the aircraft terminal, and the processor utilizes a fire dynamics simulator to simulate a thermal event at the terminal. A related fire suppression process involves the detection of incipient fires through an array of exterior passive microwave heat sensor fire detectors connected to an electronic control processor which identify zones such as 30 to 100 linear foot zones of exterior glass surface and automatically initiates an array of quenching sprinkler heads applying water to the exposed surfaces of glass and other structural elements in response to detection of an identified fire event by its signature.06-30-2011

20080196906Self-contained automatic fire extinguisher - A self-contained automatic fire extinguishing device that is located within a wall or ceiling and housed within the space between two studs or joists. This unit includes a tank or series of tanks attached via flexible pressurized joints, and held in place by an expanding bracket. This fire extinguisher maintains a constantly high pressure inside a shell of the fire extinguisher through out a shelf-life of the fire extinguisher and which can indicate the charge status of the tank via a visible indicator. A sensor is attached to the unit, which reacts to prolonged exposure to direct heat and which can extend a nozzle beyond the wall or ceiling into the living space when actuated. The self-contained automatic fire extinguishing device is hidden behind a decorative face plate which permits the passage of the sensing device and a tank fill status indicator and which actuates out of the path of the nozzle upon activation. Prior to activation, an audible warning is sounded from the device to indicate the presence of a fire and an impending activation. Once activated, the fire extinguisher contents are dispersed into the space thus significantly retarding or completely extinguishing the fire.08-21-2008
