Hypoxia warning system for monitoring partial pressure of oxygen in artificial atmospheric environments
- Bulletin CS-632
- circa 1963
The brochure describes the operation, application, and specifications of a system designed to monitor oxygen partial pressure in pilots' masks and helmets and warn them when levels dip dangerously low.
- Bulletin CS-631
- circa 1963
The brochure provides an overview of Beckman's divisions--Berkeley, Helipot, Offner, Scientific and Process Instruments, Special Projects, Spinco, and Systems--and highlights solutions provided to clients needing…
This instrument may have been produced by Advanced Technology Operations, based upon the style of its label, though the Space Engineering Group did not appear to have any U.S. Air Force contracts in 1967.
