Fire Suppression for Anechoic Chambers

The Hiller Companies is proud to offer the highest quality special hazard fire suppression tools available. We know firsthand the tremendous strides that have been made in fire detection and suppression technology over the years to meet the demands and safety standards of unique applications, such as anechoic chambers. These chambers are closed spaces designed to completely absorb reflections of sound and electromagnetic waves. Because radio frequencies cannot go in or out of the space, it is critical to utilize non-metallic fire suppression devices to protect both the chamber as well as the contents that are being tested. As the industry landscape continues to advance, Hiller has taken the lead in outfitting anechoic chambers with customized solutions for these unique needs.

A 40th Flight Test Squadron F-16 Fighting Falcon sits in the anechoic chamber after completion of the initial round of testing simulations on the new M-7 software upgrade Oct. 30, 2014, at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The M-7 software package will provide multiple advanced capabilities to the aircraft. The anechoic chamber is a room designed to stop reflections of either sound or electromagnetic waves. The room is insulated from exterior sources of noise. The room is part of a facility that allows testing of air-to-air and air-to-surface munitions and electronics systems on full-scale aircraft and land vehicles prior to open-air testing.
