The Air Force’s rotary wing aircrews will get new masks to better protect them from chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats while also improving night-vision integration. The new Joint Service Aircrew Mask — Rotary Wing replaces the Aircrew Eye and Respiratory Protection system currently used on HH-60G and UH-1N aircraft, according to an Air Force Life Cycle Management Center release. The new mask is designed to better protect from CBRN threats while also improving vision, fitting better, and improving battery life. “With recent and continuing world events, our nation’s ability to effectively fight and win in an environment that involves weapons of mass destruction has become more and more important,” Mohamed Mughal, the chief engineer of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s CBRN Defense Systems Branch, said in the release. So far, about 100 aircrew flight personnel and about 75 personnel have been trained on the new system, according to the AFLCMC.
