The suitability and acceptability of the redesigned manual release assembly, MA-56 Lap Belt were tested and evaluated. Normal missions were flown in F-100 aircraft to test the suitability of this belt for both ground and airborne operations. The design of the manual release assembly was favorably received by most aircrews but is unacceptable in its present configuration. The test showed that the belt requires modification in order to be compatible with existing personal equipment.
