The FD‑LIBIK is the safest solution for mitigating risks of a thermal runaway event on the flight deck.This fire suppression and containment kit was specifically developed for the aviation industry, and offers a versatile approach to handling a lithium-ion battery fire in a personal electronic device (PED). The FD‑LIBIK is a compact solution that uses CellBlockEX dry fire-suppressant media to extinguish a fire AND absorb toxic smoke and fumes. When a PED, such as a pilots EFB, gets overly hot, it can be placed in the FD‑LIBIK. The CellBlockEX will automatically start absorbing the heat, smoke and fumes. If a thermal runaway happens while the device is in the bag, the fire will be suppressed and contained safely.
MIT Lincoln Laboratory not only researches and develops advanced technologies vital to critical national security needs, they also build operational prototypes of the systems they design.
