SPE OBOGS: On-board Oxygen Generating SystemRegulations require oxygen usage by commercial airliners during check out and during certain aircraft configurations. This oxygen is drawn from a high pressure on-board cylinder storage system. In a typical aircraft, oxygen cylinder removal for oxygen ground servicing is conducted every 4 to 6 weeks. In the early 1990's, it was recognized that an on-board oxygen generating system (OBOGS) could provide an economic advantage for the airlines. An in-flight service evaluation (ISE) of the SPE-OBOGS by United Technologies Corporate is in the planning stage.
