The ADA Safety and Survivability group develops innovative and practical solutions for a wide range of challenging military and commercial applications where lives are at stake. The breadth of our work covers both basic and applied research in fire and explosion safety systems, maritime and underwater survival equipment, biomedical devices, and warfighting aircraft vulnerability reduction.

We develop novel products leveraging advanced materials, cutting-edge design and technologies, precise machining, state-of-the-art software, and rigorous, process-based engineering methods.

The Safety and Survivability group has been successful transitioning technology from early concept development to final implementation. For example, our patented fine water mist fire extinguishers have been deployed aboard the International Space Station to protect astronauts in their daily missions.
