Abstract
We must determine if we can incorporate our existing normobaric simulated altitude technology into a hypobaric chamber so that the chamber may first climb to 20,000 feet under normobaric mixed gas conditions, and then climb another 10,000 feet using low pressure, maintaining a steady 30,000 feet. Alternatively, we need to determine if we can we create a modular room adjacent to the hypobaric chamber that will allow students to experience 30,000 feet of simulated normobaric altitude? We believe that the answer to both of these questions is yes, we can. The first approach will require testing new oxygen sensors that can operate with our existing control system in a presurized environment. We will also test hoses, valves and seals that will allow our hypoxic air generators to perform without being damaged by the changes in pressure. In the second approach, we will need to design and develop a satisfactory altitude room that will be sealed sufficiently with an appropriate entry/exit system to allow for climbing to and maintaining 30,000 feet.
