This report describes the development of data and the sculpturing of manikins for use in designing Air Force protective garments and associated personal equipment, as part of a long-range program to present designers of protective flight equipment with a variety of anthropometric data in three-dimensional form. In part, the data are based on a re-analysis of the body statistics reported in WADC Technical Report 56 - 365, A Height-Weight Sizing System for Flying Clothing, with certain changes in the statistical rationale required by either functional or technical factors. The choice and application of the statistical data used are discussed in detail. Information is also given concerning the sculpturing techniques used in the fabrication of the body forms. Supplementary anthropometric statistics describing the human body in a seated position are presented. The statistics are analysed in accordance with the Eight-Size Height-Weight sizing system. Author
