The Research Foundaion is also planning research on:

  • Applying Reliability Based Decision Making to ITM Frequency for Fire Protection Systems and Equipment
  • Development of a Quantitative Risk Assessment Methodology for Mass Notification Systems
  • Fire Detection in Warehouses, Phase 2 (See Phase I report.)

Attendees then engaged in a small group work to brainstorm to come up with a list of potential research projects. The results of the break-out group discussions will be included in the SUPDET proceedings, which will be published in about a month.
