Abstract:

The development of low cost highly reliable equipment to be used in service protective masks which will allow the soldier in the field to drink water and to resuscitate battle field casualties while masked in a CB contaminated atmosphere is discussed. There is no such equipment in use at the present time, so that the specific design of the equipment will depend upon laboratory and field testing data obtained during the course of the program. The program is divided into three phases 1 Development - up to 3 models of three units each. 2 Prototype - 6 units of best development model. 3 Pre- production - 36 units of improved prototype. This report covers a portion of the first phase.
