Abstract : A prototype hardware and equipment design, development, and fabrication program was performed to provide elements adaptable for use in the T2J and A4D ejection seat escape systems, under contract NOw 62-0587-c. Contractual change-ofspecifications provided for inclusion of the LS-1 UPP (ballistic parachute); a cool gas generator for pararaft inflation; ballisticallyactuated take-up reels on the restraint harness; and, a ballistic parachute-canopy release actuator. System flight-testing verified the system's reliability and proper operation of the time-sequencing train. Recommendations are made for a follow-on study program to optimize overall System Performance. (Author)
