    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.
