Amanda Kimball, project manager for the Fire Protection Research Foundation , came down to NFPA's "Studio B" this week to shoot a video for the upcoming SupDet 2013 .

SupDet is short for the "Supression, Detection and Signalling Research and Applications Symposium" (that's a mouthful). The annual event, now in its 17th year, will be held in Orlando, February 26 to March 1.  It will feature more than 25 papers, addressing the latest developments, advances and research on topics including:

    • Latest in detection research including cooking fire detection research, a new strategy to address the unwanted alarm issue, and detection of wildland fires

    • Latest in sprinkler protection strategies including lithium ion batteries and other high hazard challenges

    • Latest in clean agent technology research including a case study on a Halon replacement system at a military jet engine test facility
