Abstract:

The report describes the development of the XM18 Gas Generator for inflation of the Air Force one-man life raft. The program demonstrated that inflation of life rafts can be accomplished with a solid propellant gas generator even though development has not progressed to a degree where they can compete effectively and economically with other systems.
