  Chesapeake Bay Fire Test Detachment (CBD)    

The Chesapeake Bay Fire Test Facility is concerned with all aspects of shipboard fire safety, particularly as related to flight decks, submarines and interior ship conflagrations. The emphasis is on providing facilities for intermediate scale, credible evaluations of firefighting agents, systems and training concepts under more realistic, shipboard conditions. In many cases, the facility provides a vital link between laboratory testing and full scale, proof of concept on the ex-USS Shadwell.
