Abstract:

Tests were conducted to demonstrate that the LACV-30 Air Management System removes at least 95 percent of the entering sand and dust. Analysis of 1-micron filters used in isokinetic sampling probes to measure entering and existing contamination levels indicated that the system removed 97 percent of the contamination entering during 22 minutes of vehicle operation in a high-sand environment.
