|Project Number (JTEG Assigned)
|Arc Fault Circuit Breakers
|Bob Zwitch, DSN 468-2457, 402 SMXG/CL
|TI Goals Supported
|P-1, C-2, S-3
|F-15 has experienced serious fires from aging wiring system components; Conventional thermal circuit breakers do not detect arc faults in electrical wiring presently only continuous electrical overloads are detected.
|Designed to mitigate the affects of electrical arcing in aircraft wiring systems
|Safety: minimizes risk of wiring induced fires, limits damage to faulted wire, limits electronic damage, limits structural damage, reduces troubleshooting & repair time, and Supports Standardization.
|In the Sustainment Technology Process Roadmap
