Abstract : The NASA White Sands Test Facility was requested by the USAMMDA to perform an oxygen hazard analysis on the Genox CT-1 Oxygen Generation and Distribution System (OGDS), manufactured by Pacific Consolidated Industries (PCI). An oxygen hazards analysis was performed per WSTh-Th-713 and in accordance with ASTM G 63, ASTM G 88, and ASTM G 94. Several subsystems were analyzed to thoroughly investigate and identify potential oxygen-related hazards in the OGDS system. It was determined by the WSTF Oxygen Hazards Analysis Team that no major oxygen hazards exist in this system to prevent its use in the given environments. However, several recommendations were made to enhance the system's resistance to an oxygen fire and provide a safer operating environment.
