Pacific Air Forces Airmen test Next Generation Aircrew Protection equipment

U.S. Air Force Capt. Alex “Doom” Moss, 19th Fighter Squadron F-22 Raptor pilot, tests out the Next Generation Aircrew Protection solution during a Step-Launch and Recover concept of operation training event, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, May 10, 2023. The current solution for pilots is to use the Aircrew Eye and Raspatory Protection System that was initially developed during the Gulf War and was not developed to protect against current CBRN challenge levels. The mask also degrades performance and combat effectiveness due to its bulk and lack of dexterity. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Hailey Haux)
