NASA's CHAGS is similar to the USAF's Combat Edge, but is based upon the British "Jerkin" system which has been in use for nearly twenty years. The oxygen regulator is an ABR-250-G6, manufactured by Conex Corporation. This regulator is designed to provide up to nine G's and decompression. The current configuration of CHAGS is on the right.
