Abstract:

The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Unit has evaluated an oxygen-sensing warning device, developed by Beckman Instruments, Inc., to be used as a safety feature in a Damage Control Suit System DCSS presently under development. The O2 warning device, which employs a polarographic oxygen sensor in conjunction with control electronics and a visual output, provides a visual warning in the event oxygen concentrations in the DCSS are above or below certain preselected thresholds.
