  • Max 750m distance from all personnel
  • Capacity for all personnel, plus visitors and contractors

Life Support System

In any sealed environment, the natural by-products of inhabitants (including CO2 & CO) can build up and poison the air. High enough concentrations can cause serious injury, or even death. Air scrubbing is the process of removing contaminant gases from the air to maintain a respirable atmosphere.
