Mine Rescue Team's Protective Ensemble. Volume 2.
NTIS: PB/83-162818 :65 pages
This report documents a systematic approach toward implementing an improved ensemble for the mine rescue team system that will protect against the hazards of mine rescue and recovery and will also afford improved performance through increased comfort and maneuverability, lighter burdens, and improved human engineering designs. Volume 2 presents the performance goals needed for the development of a mine rescue team's protective ensemble. Consisting of five integrated systems, the protective ensemble provides body protection, breathing gas, illumination, and communications capability. In defining the performance requirements and the associated test methods for their evaluation, the standards provide the foundation for the development of each of the systems comprising the protective ensemble.
