Abstract
It appears to be technologically feasible to develop a second-generation SCSR that is approximately twice the size and weight of an FSR and that has a rated duration of 1 h. This paper summarizes proposed performance criteria, test methods, and approval and certification procedures for second-generation SCSR's. If designed and developed to meet the proposed standards, the resulting SCSR would be safe and reliable, and could be worn by a miner as personal equipment.
