Bloodhound

When the BLOODHOUND Project team were looking for a flame detection solution for their jet and rocket-powered car as it attempts to set a new land speed record of 1000 mph, they needed the most rapid flame detection solution on the market: talentum®.  We’ve worked with the team to install 11 flame detectors in the car to protect both their magnificent engineering feat, and Andy Green, the driver!

About BLOODHOUND

The BLOODHOUND Project is a global engineering adventure, using a 1000 mph World Land Speed Record attempt to inspire the next generation about science, technology, engineering and mathematics. You can learn more at www.bloodhoundssc.com.

What the BLOODHOUND team had to say

Kevin Murray, Systems Engineer on the BLOODHOUND Project Team, explains why talentum® was the right choice:

Exploring the Options

"I was asked by the lead Systems Engineer; Jerry Bliss, to find a solution for fire detection in the car. From my military and aerospace background I knew that getting the right sensor could mean the difference between Andy completing the run safely, or aborting it because of a false alarm.

I thoroughly researched the detection products and technologies available, and spoke to various experts from Aerospace, Motorsports and Military sectors. The name that came up consistently as a market leader was talentum®."

A Mutual Appreciation

"I invited the FFE team over to the BTC and their enthusiasm and knowledge of the product was very convincing, with demonstrations to back up the theory.

Our inspirational engineering project caught FFE's imagination, and it was clear to us that they were keen to get involved."

The Ultimate Test and a Productive Partnership

"We agreed with FFE that we would work together to provide the ultimate UV/IR flame detection for BLOODHOUNDSSC, with a fire risk review, HTP (High Test Peroxide) flame detection trials, and some collaborative design work on a custom enclosure. This partnership means we’re now well on our way to integrating 11 FFE sensors in the car prior to our Newquay test run in 2016."
