Insta Pilot's Breath Air Monitor

Insta Pilot's Breath Air Monitor, IPBAM, was developed to save aircrew lives.

Insta Pilot's Breath Air Monitor is a hypoxia early warning system that reduces the risk of physiological events (PE's). IPBAM alerts the user in low oxygen or pressure conditions by haptic indication to the breathing mask and by visual indication on the IPBAM main unit. Insta Pilot's Breath Air Monitor has a data log capability and it is a standalone pilot gear - no aircraft integration needed. IPBAM is certified for military aviation and in fleet use at the Finnish Air Force.

Monitors, calculates, alarms and delivers data

Insta Pilot’s Breath Air Monitor monitors oxygen level, breathing air pressure, cabin pressure and temperature. It calculates the partial pressure of oxygen in the aircrew lungs and alarms the user about dangerous conditions. IPBAM also delivers a data log for measured and calculated parameters.








Based on science, proven by tests

Insta Pilot's Breath Air Monitor was developed together with the Finnish Airforce and Finnish Aeromedical Centre. IPBAM has been tested in laboratory and in flight and field conditions. IPBAM was developed and tested according to Insta’s AQAP-2110 process.
