Honeywell is a leader in environmental control and life support systems with over 500 million aircraft flight hours logged since 1945 and 35,000 flight hours in space. Our proven air and thermal systems include Environmental Control Systems (ECS), Cabin Pressure Control Systems (CPCS) and On-Board Oxygen Generation Systems (OBOGS).
On-Board Oxygen Generation Systems (OBOGS)
Honeywell developed On-Board Oxygen Generation Systems (OBOGS) technology in the 1980's to allow aircraft to generate oxygen in-flight. Compared to conventional systems, OBOGS based systems:
- Provide an unlimited supply of pilot breathing gas. Mission duration is no longer limited by the amount of oxygen that can be carried. This is particularly important when combined with in-flight refueling.
- Reduce the logistics infrastructure and do not need LOX plant and time to remove spent LOX converter. Allows the aircraft to be forward deployed during combat/other missions.
Existing applications of OBOGS include
- Hawk LIF
