Abstract : In this report, the A/P22S-2A is compared with the A/P22S-2 outfit. The components and factors compared included: the visor, weight, leak rate and pressure relief, reach capability, work space, thermal and acoustical evaluation, back pressure, and altitude. The comments of the persons wearing the outfit were also considered. Results indicate that the A/P22S-2A shows some improvement over the A/P22S-2; however further improvements are required to make the outfit more operationally acceptable. Specific recommendations are made as to those areas that need improvements. (Author)
