Products delivered under this specification are intended for use in high and moderate ambient noise level environments. These environments are areas where the ambient noise levels are between 105 dB SPL and 125 dB SPL (i.e., ground crew and aircrew). All hearing-protective requirements in this document and its specification sheets (intelligibility, noise-attenuation, sensitivity) were developed by Air Force agency [Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) 711th HPW/RHCB (Battlespace Acoustics) Wright-Patterson AFB OH 45433] and intended for products used by Air Force personnel, in cooperation with guidelines established by the United States Air Force Office of the Surgeon General. These field-reparable parts are repaired as specified in the Air Force Technical Order 12R2- 2AIC-222CL- 1, which is available from the Air Force Custodian upon request. Products are expected to be effectively used for a period not less than 4 years, including authorized maintenance and repair.View Less
