Abstract : The compatibility and accommodation of aircrew personnel in modern high performance aircraft and space vehicles have been seriously handicapped by a lack of specific and detailed morphological measurements. A device was designed by which inexperienced personnel may obtain rapid and accurate measurements in a continuing anthropometric survey program. The design criteria and the subsequent development of the device is discussed. The results of experimental evaluations of the reliability and accuracy of the device, when employed by naval medical technicians, are presented.
