The problems of detecting fire and overheat in a supersonic aircraft, while similar to those in subsonic aircraft, have certain unique characteristics. These characteristics are due basically to the dynamic and thermal environment associated with the Mach 3 to Mach 4.5 flight regime. This paper presents an approach toward the solution of these problems and provides a brief history of aircraft fire and overheat detection leading to current system design concepts.
