1-2-1 N uclear B iological C hemical AIRCREW CBR ENSEMBLE Donning Procedures Chemical Biological Radiological
1-2-2 TERMINAL OBJECTIVE Perform the necessary steps to correctly don the aircrew CBR ensemble.
1-2-3 ENABLING OBJECTIVE Understand the procedures for donning all Below-the-neck clothing Understand the procedures for donning the Respirator Assembly Understand the functional readiness tests for the Respirator Assembly
1-2-4INTRODUCTION n A/P22-14 (V)1 and A/P23P Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) Respirator Assemblies are designed to protect rotary wing aircrew from the toxic and lethal effects of chemical, biological and nuclear agents n A/P22P-14 (V)2 - 4 CBR Respirator Assemblies are designed to protect fixed wing aircrew from the above listed agents from ground level to 43,000 ft. n Below-the-neck (BTN) components are designed to compliment and enhance the respirator assembly function.
1-2-5 INTRODUCTION Donning of Respirator Assembly and BTN clothing shall be supervised by a qualified Aircrew Survival Equipmentman, MOS 6060, in accordance with OPNAVINST Series. Donning of Respirator Assembly and BTN clothing shall be supervised by a qualified Aircrew Survival Equipmentman, MOS 6060, in accordance with OPNAVINST Series.

Donning Order - non ejection seat fixed wing n CBR overvest n Helmet – connect chin/nape strap n CBR gloves n CBR over booties - to be removed prior to entering aircraft n CBR cape - to be removed prior to entering aircraft Continue
Donning Order – Rotary Wing n CBR socks - optional tape calves n CPU n Flight Suit n Boots n ARS n Skull cap if desired n Upper respiratory assembly - tuck shoulder skirt into flight suit n AIRSAVE/ SV2- h pocket
Donning Order – Rotary Wing cont. n Helmet – connect chin/nape strap n CBR gloves n CBR over booties - to be removed prior to entering aircraft n CBR cape - to be removed prior to entering aircraft
Donning Procedures n Spectacles (ARS) –can regular spectacles be used? n Skull cap –to help absorb sweat from the head –may require additional help to put hood on over
Donning Procedures cont n Mask –Hood outlet valve open vs closed –Ensure pusher fan is ON WARNING When donning the mask do not overextend or damage the neck seal. Do not wear watches or stone rings while donning. n Respirator Functional Test Video
Respirator Function Test n Don hood n Don helmet n Pusher fan on n Connect toggle harness assembly to helmet and adjust n Pinch-off hood inlet hose –Air vents through hood outlet valve n Wearer holds breath and notes if air is leaking from around the mask –Leakage evident re-adjust toggle harness. If still present and cant fix via toggle harness replace with a smaller or larger mask.
Donning Procedures cont n Once mask and hood are donned tuck shoulder skirt into flight suit –this is why you must don mask prior to torso harness and/or survival vest CAUTION Ensure shoulder skirt material does not catch in the slide fastener and neck bellows remains outside of flight suit collar. Be sure shoulder skirt is not tucked in too tightly, as this can restrict mobility.
This. Not this
Donning Procedures cont l Helmet –Turn pusher fan OFF make sure the hood outlet valve is open –Sprinkle talc on exposed hood covering the head * –Don fore to aft –Attach chin/nape strap –Turn pusher fan ON –Check visor operation * NOTE A very light dusting of talc on the outside of the hood can be used to facilitate helmet donning. Video
Donning Procedures cont n Secure mask to helmet WARNING For proper retention of the helmet, the toggle harness must lie over hooks provided on V- bow. n Check nose occluder n Perform location drills

Donning Procedures cont n Intercom Unit (ICU) –Connect to mask mic and helmet –ICU Functional Test –Secure to vest WARNING Ensure ICU is turned off prior to removing or installing batteries. NOTE The amplifier must be removed for the ICU to operate properly.
ICU Functional Test n Connect to mask microphone with ground com cord n Switch toggle or control knob to Listen Only position. n Talk into ICU and have aircrew confirm sound in helmet. n Switch toggle or control knob to Talk/Listen position. n Instruct aircrew to talk and confirm sound from speaker. n Talk into ICU and have aircrew confirm sound in helmet earphones.
Ground Comms to Air Comms n Insure appropriate amp is connected to aircraft comms –All platforms as required n Disconnect ground comms prior to hooking up to aircraft comms –Unless not connected to aircraft comms
Donning Procedures cont n Canteen WARNING Keep the drink facility quick disconnect plugged into a canteen or its holder to reduce the chance of contamination NOTE Not authorized for in-flight use by aircrews of ejection seat aircraft.
Donning Procedures cont n Cotton Glove Inserts if using old glove system –Optional for new glove system –Roll up flight suit sleeves n Butyl Protective Gloves or Gore HSF Chemical Protective Gloves –Under CPU sleeves –Flight Gloves –Flight suit over gloves
n Disposable Footwear Covers –Protect from contamination en-route to aircraft. –Remove before entering aircraft n Cape Donning Procedures cont
NVG INTEGRATION NVG Donning Considerations –Set Eye Relief Adjustments to the forward position –Expect reduced dexterity & increased time required when adjusting goggles NVG Performance –Degraded FOV (additional 10%) –Based on helmet and mask size / fit. –Greatly increases potential for Loss of SA / SD
MISSION READINESS n Conduct Pre-flight inspection n Disconnect canteen (for ejection seat aircraft) n Communication connection change (if aircraft comms available) n Remove cape and booties prior to entering aircraft n Oxygen connection and H-manifold in proper position if O2 is to be used n Check for proper field of view and head mobility ENSURE:
PRE-FLIGHT INSPECTION n Visual Inspection n Cleaning n Functional tests
Lessons Learned n For respirator functional test for A/P22P-14 variants 2-4 you can also place the H- manifold into the closed position when the mask is properly tightened to the face and the regulator is connected. If the wearer cannot take a breath in then its a good seal. Do this in addition to the functional test described on slide 15 of this brief. n You can combine the respirator functional test with the practice of the mask EP for fixed wing oxygen in-operation as a review. n Easier to don and doff the hood if the hood valve is closed and the pusher fan is running.
Lessons Learned cont n Proper ensemble fitting is critical for CBR protection and aircrew comfort. n Ensure when donning that the Overvest does not interfere with the aircrews life preserver n Use Skull Cap under Hood n Ensure Internal Drink Tube n Requires increased Aircrew Coordination - In both Donning and in Flight Ops n is set properly n Aircrew should plan on using winter sized flight gear.
Lessons Learned cont n Go one to two sizes up on flight gloves (for old system gloves) n Have G-Suit fit check prior to donning. n PRs and Pilots would rather have the COM system taken care of in the shop than the aircraft.
1-2-40Questions? n What is the first piece of NBC gear you should put on? The last? n What is the respirator functional test? n Can canteens be used while flying? n Name a couple of things you should ensure to be mission ready.
