Col. Laura Lenderman, 375th Air Mobility Wing commander cuts a ribbon to present the Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device at Scott. The ROBD allows aviators and aircrew to experience hypoxia without the threat of decompression sickness or the need for preoxygenation. Over the next six years, the ROBD will save Scott AFB over $300,000 in training.
