This drawing covers the design, fabrication, performance and testing requirements for a type of equipment designated Ejection Seat and Survival System. The specified ejection seat and survival system shall provide for pilot escape and survival from the Dyna-Soar glider in instances when satisfactory landing site cannot be reached or when other conditions make an attempted glider landing impractical. The upward ejection seat and rail assembly for the Dyna- Soar vehicle shall be patterned after existing state-of-the-art ejection seats. Size requirements for the pilot are based on a 5th to 75th percentile man, maximum fully dressed in a full pressure - body restraint suit system. A qualified Air Force back type parachute and a seat type rescue and survival kit shall be provided. Ejection sequencing shall be accomplished by actuating a two handed ejection control located on the front edge of the seat bucket between the pilots legs. After ejection, automatic seatman separation shall be provided, with automatic parachute deployment at 14,000 feet or less.
