The first extravehicular research model full pressure assembly designed for operation at 5 psig was subjected to a series of tests to determine the operational characteristics of the assembly. Test data were obtained at 3.5-psig operating pressure to permit performance data comparison with the AP22S-2 data and data obtained on other experimental assemblies designed to operate at 3.5 psig. Test data were also obtained at 5-psig operating pressure. These tests included those considered to be basic standard performance tests for protective assemblies. Particular emphasis was placed on tests conducted to determine mobility characteristics. In general, the mobility obtained was an improvement over that of the AP22S-2 full pressure assembly. Author
