The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center's Human Systems Division is working closely with aircrews and industry experts, to develop, acquire and improve the bladder relief devices that are available to aircrews. This year, the division began delivering the Aircrew Mission Extender Device (AMXDmax) and so far have fielded 606 of the devices, with another 1,500 scheduled for delivery over the next six months. The new devices are hands-free, battery operated, are worn underneath uniforms, and are designed to collect urine (in cup for males, pad for females), and pump it into a collection bag. To provide feedback on AMXDmax or for questions about how to acquire the devices, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
