EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Trailer Mounted Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen Generator is a self-contained trailer mounted generating plant capable of producing either liquid oxygen or liquid nitrogen, or both simultaneously. When the generator has reached a steady state of operation at ambient conditions, it is capable of producing liquid oxygen and/or nitrogen at a rate of two tons per day. Select overseas Marine Corps and Naval Air Stations use the LOX-30/PLN-430 Liquid Oxygen/ Nitrogen Generator to produce liquid oxygen and nitrogen. These units were procured under a 1976 contract and have reached the end of their service life. The Trailer Mounted Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen Generator is the designated replacement for the LOX-30/PLN-430 Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen Generator. Additionally, the Trailer Mounted Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen Generator will be the replacement for the Marine Corps A/M26U-5 Expeditionary Oxygen/Nitrogen System (EONS) beginning in October 1999.

The Trailer Mounted Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen Generator is a Non-Developmental Item with preference to Commercial Off-The-Shelf procurement. Developmental Test and Operational Test were completed during the Technical Evaluation in November 1997 at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point, North Carolina. Initial Operational Capability was achieved in December 1998. The Material Support Date and Navy Support Date for the Trailer Mounted Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen Generator is scheduled for second quarter FY01.

The Trailer Mounted Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen Generator will be operated and maintained at the intermediate maintenance level by Navy personnel of the Machinist's Mate rating with Navy Enlisted Classification 4201 and Marine Corps personnel with Military Occupational Specialty 6075. No additional military manpower will be required. Maintenance technical assistance relative to engineering and logistics support is the responsibility of the Fleet Support Activity (FSA) Naval Air Warfare Center Lakehurst. The planned service life is 15 years.

The initial contract for six Trailer Mounted Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen Generators was awarded to Pacific Consolidated Industries in April 1996. An option to purchase 12 additional generators was exercised in first quarter FY99. These 12 units will be distributed to Marine Aviation Logistics Squadrons (MALS) 11, 12, 13, 14, 31, and 41.

Initial Training was completed at the Pacific Consolidated Industries factory production sites. Follow-on Training began at Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment, MCAS Cherry Point in March 1999.

Mounted on a four-wheel trailer, the O2/N2 Generator has a self-contained power supply by means of a 160-kilowatt diesel powered electric generator. The O2/N2 Generator has a 175 horsepower, 460 volt, three phase, 60-hertz Hertz (Hz) motor to drive the air compression unit (the motor is rated at 145 horsepower when used on 380 volt, three phase, 50 Hz power). The O2/N2 Generator is capable of 10 days continuous production of liquid oxygen and/or liquid nitrogen at a rate of two tons per day without plant thaw, with ambient temperatures of negative 25 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Foreign Military Sales. Not Applicable (NA)

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. Developmental Test (DT) and Operational Test (OT) were completed in November 1997 at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point, North Carolina. The evaluation team included civilian personnel attached to the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Patuxent River (NAWCADPAX) Maryland, Platform Support Equipment Evaluation/Verification Branch (4.8.12.2) and military personnel attached to Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS) 14, VMAT-203 Fleet Replacement Enlisted Skills Training (FREST) Cryogenics MCAS Cherry Point, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), /Marine Aviation Logistics Squadrons (MALS)-39 MCAS Camp Pendleton, and 3rd MAW/MALS-11 Naval Air Station (NAS) Miramar. Production Approval was awarded in December 1997.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. Currently the overseas air stations use LOX-30/PLN-430 Liquid Oxygen/Nitrogen Generators. They were procured under a 1976 contract and have reached the end of their service life. Additionally, the O2/N2 Generator has been designated as the replacement for the Marine Corps A/M26U-5 Expeditionary Oxygen/Nitrogen System (EONS).

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The O2/N2 Generator is a self-contained trailer mounted generating plant capable of generating either liquid oxygen or liquid nitrogen, or both simultaneously. The generator intakes ambient air through an air compression device. The compressed air is then routed to a turbo expander type liquefaction device, where it is liquefied. The liquefied air then is routed to a fractional distillation device where it is separated into high purity liquid oxygen or liquid nitrogen. When the generator has reached a steady state of operation at ambient conditions, it is capable of producing liquid oxygen/nitrogen at a rate of two tons per day.
