Tactical Life Support System. Developed by the USAF and Boeing/Gentex et. al. to provide get-me-down protection from 18 km. Incorporated many new features - including a modular mask, vest, and anti-G suit ensemble integrated to provide PBG for high G maneuvers and PBA for altitude. G trousers provided 4 times the breathing pressure from a molecular sieve oxygen concentration system. There were updated variants of this system in the United Kingdom, Canada, Sweden, and an Advanced Oxygen System for France.
