Abstract:

A helicopter-mounted irritant-gas disperser, E-16R1, was installed and operated in flight in H-21, H-34, and HU-1A helicopters and was installed, but not operated, in an H-19 helicopter. The gas disperser consisted essentially of a sealed hopper which holds powdered agent, a pressure tank assembly which contains air under pressure, and a hose assembly from which the agent is disseminated. Cargo tiedown straps were used to secure the disperser to the helicopter. The disperser was 4 feet high and 2 12 feet wide and weighed 280 pounds with agent. Powdered talc was provided as an agent for test purposes.
