Cobham’s portable VigilOX Inhalation Sensor Block (ISB), is a pilot mounted sensor that captures characteristics of oxygen supply gas and cabin environmental data at the point of inhalation during flight. Data includes oxygen flow rate and concentration to assess oxygen system performance, along with cabin temperature and pressure conditions. The ISB is coupled with Cobham’s Exhalation Sensor Block (ESB), which monitors and collects pilot respiration data by measuring oxygen consumption and expired carbon dioxide at the point of exhalation.
Cobham is supporting NASA and the US Department of Defense to better understand the dynamics of aircraft life support systems and pilot performance. See our VigilOX™ breathing sensors in this video.
