Research Institution
In order to address the Navy"s need for a new mask-on mobile device to train aviators for altitude exposure (hypoxia training), ChromoLogic LLC (CL) proposes to develop a Portable Hypoxia Training (PHYTR) system. The PHYTR system will be based on a novel concept that takes ambient air and produces user specified oxygen content through a cyclical fluid exchange process. When completed, the PHYTR system will be compact (<18"X18"), use a regular wall-plug power (120V, 1A) and will not require any consumables (air tanks, filters) resulting in a simple, cost effective solution that will produce>250LPM of on-demand air that can simulate conditions from sea level to 30,000ft. In Phase I, CL will build and demonstrate a prototype that will demonstrate all the key components of the PHYTR system. In Phase II, CL will demonstrate a fully functional system at a Navy training site (TRL 9).
