Pagination or Media Count:
The USAF OEHL requested by HQ Space Division AFSC to measure octave band noise levels inside the new propellant handlers ensemble PHE for use by the Space Shuttle Activation Task Force SATAF at Vandenberg AFB CA. The noise levels were necessary to determine if the PHE meets the requirements of paragraph 220.127.116.11.3 of the suit specification 79K20409 and to assess the potential for possible interferences with either internal or external voice transmissions. The PHE met the specification levels in several but not all operating categories. Speech interference levels were also dependent on the operating category.
