Sabre was oringinally contacted by the Ministry of Defence to help develop a piece of emergency escape breathing apparatus that would safeguard against unecessary loss of life, like that seen during the falklands war. During this conflict it was found that 90% of fatalities on HMS Sheffield died through smoke inhalation. The result of research conducted by Sabre led to the development of the Emergency Life Support Apparatus or 'ELSA'.
