The Wave Extinguisher
Force SV was founded by two electrical engineering majors at George Mason University. Seth Robertson and Viet Tran collaborated in their senior project to create "The Wave Extinguisher". From their viral success, they have been featured on major news outlets such as: CNN, Time, USA Today, The Washington Post, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Gizmodo, Popular Science, and many other major media outlets.
UPDATE (February 2019): Force SV has recently licensed this technology to ARSAC Technologies, Inc. ARSAC Technologies is currently working actively on moving this technology forward and is implementing this technology into multiple applications. For inquiries, please see contact information below.
How it Works
Force SV uses low-frequency sound to suppress and extinguish fires. This revolutionary technology can be applied to automated systems and ensure the safety of nearby personnel. Current fire extinguishers use toxic chemicals which can further damage valuable equipment and cause harm to the person utilizing the extinguisher. We aim to revolutionize the fire protection industry and innovate safety. There are a myriad of applications such as: kitchen, chemical facility, automotive vehicle safety etc.
Our solution is to use acoustic fire suppression to address multiple types of fires. Many people panic in the instance of a fire and are not educated on the types of fires that exist. When addressing a fire, you need to use the specific fire classification specified for that fire. With this acoustic fire suppression technology, it will be able to address multiple types of fires and also protect people and equipment from harmful chemicals.
UPDATE (Feb. 2019): Exclusive license for all fire related research & development, as well as "patent assignee" of the ForceSV Wave Extinguisher Technology, has been awarded under contract to ARSAC Technologies, Inc.
