Technical Requirements
The O2N2 Test Set is used to perform functional tests on the V-22 Aircraft concentrators. These concentrators are a part of the O2N2 system that provides oxygen and nitrogen for crew breathing and aircraft system nitrogen requirements. The O2N2 concentrator is a Weapons Replaceable Assembly (WRA) and consists of Two Shop Replaceable Assemblies (SRA); the Controller/Monitor (CM), which is the electronics package, and the Pressure-Swing-Absorption Assembly (PSA), which is the entire WRA less the CM. The Test Set is to validate various performance and functional parameters on the concentrator. It is alsoto perform fault isolation procedures to the SRA and sub-SRA levels. All O-Level maintenance is on condition and results in removal and replacement of the concentrator based on failure reporting by the CM. All maintenance of the concentrator will be performed off-aircraft at the Intermediate Level of maintenance. Off-aircraft maintenance will be to test and fault isolate to the subassembly level.

The Test Set is to have the following capabilities:
1) Regulate and measure the inlet air source to the concentrator
2) Control and measure the nitrogen product gas flow rate
3) Control and measure the oxygen product gas flow rate
4) Measure the oxygen concentration of the oxygen product gas
5) Measure the oxygen concentration of the nitrogen product gas
6) Measure the oxygen and nitrogen outlet pressure
7) Measure the regulator outlet pressure
8) ARINC 429 Bus Communication
9) Capable to operate the PSA without the controller/monitor

All maintenance on the O2N2 Concentrator and Test Set must be performed in an environment suitable for oxygen sensitive equipment.

The O2N2 Concentrator Test Set is to consist of two case assemblies; an electronics case assembly and a plenum case assembly. The electronics case assembly is to house the electrical/pneumatic controls and measurement instruments. The plenum case assembly is to house two plenums and a storage area for a portable laptop computer, computer 3.5" software discs, interconnection hoses, cables and adapters.

Request for Information
Please provide the following information with respect to your O2N2 Concentrator Test Set, which meets the requirements specified above:

1. General description of your Test Set.
2. Identification of critical requirements for the Test Set.
3. Overview of your Test Set concept of operation.
4. Discuss critical information required for the use of your Test Set.
5. Describe environmental testing test methods.
6. Provide any additional information desired.
