Abstract : A preproduction Portable Life Support Stretcher Unit (PLSSU) was subjected to a series of environmental tests, including conditions simulating aircraft (helicopter and fixed wing) environments. The various fittings of the PLSSU were found to have sufficient strength for their intended uses. The main structure showed minor deficiencies in integrity, in both design and fabrication, but is considered to have passed the environmental tests despite some damage. Minor preproduction improvements are recommended in structural reinforcements, fittings, and attachments. (Author)
