Abstract:

The objective of this program was to evaluate two types of ventilator kits for maximum cost effectiveness. The kits shown on the following page are 1 Pedal Ventilator Kit, and 2 the Kearny Pump Kit. The two units were previously developed by GARD in 1969 for DCPA under Contract No. DAHC20-68-C-0123. An engineering study was conducted on the ventilator kits to determine the potential manufacturing economies. Based on the conclusions of the study, the fabrication drawings, military specificatins and deployment instructions were updated to reflect modifications determined to be cost-effective. Three prototype units of each fit were fabricated and assembled utilizing the revised documentation. One set of the ventilator kits was subsequently tested to assure that the units performance and reliability were not compromised. Production cost estimates based on a procurement of 10,000 units each were generated for DCPA budgetary purposes. Author
