This high-speed damage-control system was built around Arc Fault Detect and Continuous Thermal Monitoring (AFD/CTM) from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. When AFD/CTM detects dangerous arc faults — powerful discharges of electricity between conductors —  the ADACS system immediately cuts power to the affected circuit before it can damage equipment or injure nearby personnel. Altogether, the system prevents loss of life, preserves countless repair dollars and assures continuous readiness.

ADACS can be applied to both new and existing electronic construction. It is presently installed on all U.S. Navy nuclear submarines, aircraft carriers and other marine vessels, and is credited with preventing catastrophic electrical failures and fires. Saving hundreds of lives.
