Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE ELECTRO-MECHANICAL INFLATOR PROGRAM IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A WATER ACTIVATED AUTOMATIC INFLATOR FOR LIFE PRESERVERS. IT WILL HAVE AN ELECTRICAL WATER IMMERSION CIRCUIT WHICH ACTIVATES A MECHANICAL DEVICE TO RELEASE CO(2) FROM THE CARTRIDGE. THE DEVICE IS TO HAVE THE LOW COST AND EASY MAINTENANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF SOLUBLE MATERIAL AUTOMATIC INFLATORS WITH THE HIGH RELIABILITY OF SQUID TYPE AUTOMATIC INFLATORS.
