Oxygen Systems Handbook

Keywords crew systems JSSG oxygen systems

The number and type(s) of aircraft occupants is a basic functional requirement that should be called out in the initial portion of the aircraft oxygen system description. The functional subsystems are given by personnel types that must use the oxygen subsystems. The performance features associated with each of these types of personnel are strongly dependent on the aircraft and its mission. Additionally, the primary equipment groups are listed that may apply to one or more of the functional subsystems. These equipment groups have unique design criteria.
