1967.10.10 - Meetings discussed the Apollo oxygen purge system (OPS) status


A series of meetings discussed the oxygen purge system (OPS) program status and design configuration.

The following conclusions were reached:

  • The OPS theoretical reliability for completion of a 30-minute operation time was extremely high and would not be appreciably improved by the addition of redundant systems or components.
  • Capability for preoperational checkout in the LM was desirable and was incorporated into the OPS design.
  • Manual actuation was preferable to automatic actuation and was reflected in the design.
