A potassium superoxide atmosphere control system using the optimum features of passive and dynamic techniques was man-tested for 24 hours. The results demonstrate the feasibility of using a potassium superoxide system of this design for manned space missions. This semipassive technique is applicable to short missions as well as longer missions. The findings indicate that significant weight, volume, and power savings can be obtained using the semipassive technique as compared to dynamic techniques used in other solid chemical atmosphere control systems.
