Early fire detection has a crucial role in fire spreading and extinguishing. Development of fire detection technology was introduced as a result of series of great fire incidents, which have caused heavy material losses with even greater casualties. Fire is among the major sources of danger to the ship, and therefore special attention must be paid to preventing and extinguishing fires on board. The recent development of fire detection sensors and their integration into the fire alarm system can be traced through the development of four generations of sensors. Integration of fire detection technology with microelectronics and information technologies, a high level of system autonomy is achieved, allowing wireless networking of fire alarm sensor while increasing system reliability and availability.
