Abstract : The objective of this task was to identify, collect data and evaluate technologies that, in the future, will provide enhanced protection and performance for an advanced individual protection system (AIPS). The evaluation assesses the long term expectations of these technologies, identifies research and equipment needed to mature these technologies, and provides a sketch of an AIPS incorporating several of the more promising technologies. This document will serve as a technology base for future developmental programs to improve aspects of the respiratory protection system.
