In January 1990, the 3-1 System Program Office and AFMCs Productivity, Reliability and Maintenance PRAM Office requested AFPTEFs assistance on testing a replacement oxygen analyzer. B-1 aircraft have an onboard generator which supplies oxygen for the crew. Field maintenance uses a current oxygen equipment tolerance. The existing oxygen analyzer currently exhibits high failure rates, an inability to measure flow, and requires complex mathematical calculations to determine readings. The Program and PRAM office contracted with Aeronautical Systems Centers Fabrication Facility at Wright-Patterson to develop a replacement that would be more user friendly for maintenance personnel. AFPTEF used its equipment to determine if the analyzer complies with military test transportation, handling and operational specification for lightweight equipment.
