Pacific Air Forces Airmen test Next Generation Aircrew Protection equipment

A modified M-50 ground crew mask as well as other Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) protective gear is on display during training related to the Step-Launch and Recover concept of operation, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, May 10, 2023. Over the past few years, there has been a slew of innovative ideas that have been brought to the Pacific Air Forces region—the most recent being the U.S. Air Force Next Generation Aircrew Protection project. This allows aircrew to safely generate sorties in a CBRN contaminated environment. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Hailey Haux)
