     (PMFOS) CONSISTS OF A CASF: WHICH CONTAINS AN AIR SAMPLING- DEVICE
                                                                                     THE
     COMPONENTS NECESSARY TO TEST A PROTECTIVE MASK, A CASE
     WHICH HOUSES SPARE PARTS AND TOOLS TO INSTALL THEM, TWO (2) BOXES
     OF ALCOHOL AMPULES, AND 20 BATTERIES. THE BOXES OF ALCOHOL AMPULES
     AND BATTERIES ARE EXPENDABLES TO THE PMFVS. THE PMFVS CAN VALIDATE
                                                         FIT OF 1500 PROTECTIVE MASKS
     WITH EXPENDABLES AS REQUISITIONED.
     FIT VALIDATION OF ONE (1) PROTECTIVE MASK TAKES 15 MINUTES.
TEM. THE
     SYSTEM IS THREE (3) CUBIC FEET IN TOTAL SIZE AND WEIGHS 35 IL'OUNDS

     IT-TESTING PROCEDURES, WHICH PROVIDES
     GREATER ACCURACY BY SEVERAL ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE. THIS IS DUE TO THE
     FACT THAT BANANA OIL TESTING RELIES ON A PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSE FROM
     THE WEARER OF THE MASK, WHEREAS$ THE PMFVS MEASURES FIT-FACTOR
