ExAct Titan – Military vehicle fire suppression systems

Re-thinking fire protection

The ExAct Titan fire suppression system protects military vehicles and containers against fires

In today’s turbulent world situation, having military vehicles protected with an effective and reliable fire suppression system is more important than ever. The ExAct Titan fire suppression system protects armoured military vehicles and containers against fire threats both in peacetime and during military operations.

ExAct Titan is a fire protection system solution that provides protection against various modern fire threats: improvised explosive devices (IEDs), fuel tank explosions, penetrating hits, electrical malfunctions and oil leakages. Furthermore, the system prevents pressure build-up, temperature rise and formation of toxic gases.

The custom-made ExAct Titan military fire suppression systems are proudly designed and manufactured by Mikro-Pulssi Oy (see mikro-pulssi.fi/en/).

Re-thinking fire protection – ExAct Titan brings new ideas into military fire suppression

ExAct Titan is a pioneering fire suppression system that extends the use of a bus-based operations model to mobile military applications. The system uses advanced, military-specific CAN (Controller Area Network) technology. The design of the system is modular, the system consisting of standardized, addressable components.

The use of CAN bus technology ensures fast and reliable communication between system components. As a result, the system is always up to date and capable of immediate response.

ExAct Titan integrates with vehicle control systems (vehicle management systems, C4I etc.). The system responds to changes in vehicle operation and adapts its operation accordingly. The system operates differently e.g. when the vehicle is in motion or when the vehicle is parked and unoccupied. ExAct Titan transmits information to vehicle systems.

The ExAct Titan military fire suppression system detects and suppresses all fires – quickly and reliably

The ExAct Titan system for military vehicles and containers detects and suppresses all fires, whether slowly growing or instantaneous, small or large. Explosive fires and armour penetrations are detected and suppressed in milliseconds and slow-growth fires in a couple of seconds. Improved fire safety makes it possible for the crew to stay in the vehicle if a fire occurs.

The reliable operation of the ExAct Titan fire suppression system is based on several factors. These include fast and secure local bus communication, intelligent component design, and advanced built-in self-testing and self-diagnostics. The ExAct Titan system is further characterized by high false alarm immunity and low maintenance requirement.

All in all, the ExAct Titan military vehicle fire suppression systems succeed in combining modular system design, CAN bus technology and excellent fire detection and fire suppression capabilities into superior fire protection performance.
