Automatic Fire Suppression Systems

Millisecond Operation for Enhanced Survivability

Marotta Controls delivers fire suppression systems created for mission-critical applications such as naval and military vehicles. Our military vehicle fire suppression systems are counted on to perform under the toughest conditions imaginable and do their job as effectively as possible. More robust than commercial fire suppression systems, our solutions can be depended upon to keep personnel and assets safe at all times.

Our automatic fire suppression systems are specifically designed for military combat vehicles to enhance survivability against fires caused by IEDs or penetrating munitions. The system can disperse aqueous-based or gas suppressants in less than 10 milliseconds and is capable of suppressing all possible types of fire, large or small, including tire fires which are extremely difficult to extinguish. Our marine fire suppression systems and ship fire suppression systems are built with technology proven to work even in the harshest environments.
