M50 Gas Masks & The Confidence Chamber
The confidence chamber aka gas chamber, house of horrors, chamber of horrors, is what all soldiers pass through during Basic Training. The goal of the training is to teach Soldiers how to react to chemical and biological weapons and to help them gain confidence in their equipment.
Soldiers enter the chamber with their gas masks on but the gas causes a burning sensation but has no lasting ill effects. The exercise gives Soldiers an idea of the symptoms they would experience in an attack of nerve gas or other biological agent.

CS gas – also known as compound 2-chlorobenzalmalononitrile, or tear gas, reacts with moisture to cause major discomfort in human beings.

Joint Service General Purpose Mask (JSGPM) M-50/M-51

The Joint Service General Purpose Mask (JSGPM) is a family of above-the-neck, Chemical and Biological (CB) respirators that protects against battlefield concentrations of CB agents, toxins, toxic industrial materials and radioactive particulate matter. The family consists of the M50 (ground use), M51 (ground vehicle use), M53 (Special Forces) and M53A1 (domestic and military use). The M50/M51 masks replace the M40 and M42, MCU2/P series masks and the M45 in the Land Warrior Program. The M53A1 can be used in either Air-Purifying Respirator, Powered Air Purifying Respirator, or Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus mode, and is the first mask to be approved for both domestic response (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health certified) and military missions.

JSGPM (M50 Gas Mask) Benefits

JSGPM provides the warfighter with face, eye and respiratory protection from battlefield concentrations of CB agents, toxins, toxic industrial materials and radiological particulate matter.
• Overall field-of-view is greater than or equal to 80 percent
• Improved compatibility with current and emerging CB garments
