AbstractA telemetering system developed to enable research and development personnel to evaluate physical performance aspects-of US Army protective masks on a quantitative basis is described. Respiration, acceleration, and temperature data generated by a subject wearing a mask can be monitored simultaneously at a point remote from the mask wearer. The system operates in the 216-235 MHz telemetry band using an FM/FM mode. Data transmission in excess of 1/2 mile (via ground wave) has been obtained without experiencing signal deterioration. Data generated can either be recorded directly on a strip chart recorder, magnetic tape recorder or both simultaneously. Data recorded on magnetic tape can be analyzed by use of an Analog Computer. Measurements obtained using this equipment compare in accuracy with that obtained through use of conventional laboratory instrumentation.
