Motor-Powered Cast Cutter for use in Aeromedical Airlift.
Final rept. Sep 72-Jul 73,
SCHOOL OF AEROSPACE MEDICINE BROOKS AFB TEX
Pagination or Media Count:
Commercially available motor-powered cast cutters were reviewed and two were selected as potentially acceptable for use in aeromedical airlift aircraft. One was eliminated because of size, and the other was tested, with modifications to permit compliance with MIL-STD-461A. Test results showed costs not economically feasible and increased leakage current. A 2-year waiver on MIL-STD-461A was obtained from Aeronautical Systems Division, Wright-Patterson AFB, which permits using the DePuy Cast-O-Vac, Model 1049, without modification, onboard the C-9 aircraft.
