Open-ended Terms H-23. The design and prototype field evaluation of a new high capacity, high efficiency air filtration system for use on ligh fixed and rotary wing aircraft is described. This work was the outgrowth of the original development of an optimum filter medium to protect the air induction s stem of aircraft from the ingestion of large amounts of dust and other air-borne contaminants. Preliminary laboratory testing and a field test of the new engine air filtration system were carried out using an ARMY H-23 helicopter as a test vehicle. The field test program culminated with the certification of the air filter unit by the Federal Aviation Agency. S.T.C. SH1-517 dated 11-16-1960. Results of both laboratory and field testing are reported in detail.
