Paper Abstract

A passive fiber optic fire sensor that uses transmission quality silica fiber is described. The fiber optic is used only to direct radiation from a fire down to a detector, as a light conduit. The sensor is characterized by resistance to high temperature environments, dirt, and electromagnetic fields. It is small, compact, lightweight, and senses fires from a wide variety of sources.
