Abstract:

The Hypoxia Monitoring, Alert and Mitigation System HAMS program is progressing as expected. The program consists of two baseline tasks and three optional task. Work has been started on Task 1. Task 2 will begin in May. Optional Tasks 3, 4 and 5 have not been exercised. Although performance of the initial arm mounted prototype was below expectations on initial testing, a mitigation strategy has been initiated that includes a multi-site approach. This approach has the potential to add redundancy to the sensor network that will further enhance the system. We recommend that the program continue as scheduled assuming the remaining funding is obligated to the contract.
