Aircirew training device to save AMC time, money
U.S. Navy Capt. Robert Hudson, Joint Base Charleston deputy commander, cuts the ribbon to mark the beginning of the Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device operations May 2, 2017. Because the device is available locally, 1,200 Airmen can receive onset hypoxia training annually without the added requirement of traveling to an installation with an altitude chamber. ROBD training allows aviators and aircrew to experience hypoxia without the threat of decompression sickness associated with the altitude chamber.
