Abstract:

Developmental prototypes of emergency pressure suit, Type CSU-5P, are described. Subsequent sizing of this coverall in the eight-size height-weight program was based on the fourth model. The development of this coverall presents an opportunity to consolidate the anti-exposure and altitude coveralls with a minimum penalty for weight, when used on a specific mission profile which requires protection at altitude, and exposure on land and water in cold climates. A review of the attempts to integrate the neck seal bladder and coverall, in conjunction with quick entry methods, indicates definite progress, but requires that modifications be considered.
