University of Pittsburgh researcher Andrew Simonson adjusts the maximal oxygen consumption mask worn by Senior Airman Brian Huhtala. Researchers have to adapt their controlled laboratory procedures to overcome the harsh field conditions in which Air Force special tactics Airmen operate.

University of Pittsburgh researcher, Andrew Simonson, sets a maximal oxygen consumption control unit to collect data on a special tactics Airman during an exercise mission. The data helps researchers determine which specific aspects of a mission place the most physical demands on an operator. (U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt. Jeffrey Allen)

University of Pittsburgh researcher Andrew Simonson attaches a maximal oxygen consumption mask to Senior Airman Brian Huhtala. Researchers measure the VO2 Max of Airmen while they conduct training missions in order to gather data in an operational environment.
