Abstract:

A series of experimental procedures was accomplished to demonstrate and measure the protection X-20A DynaSoar pilots obtain by wearing their custom fitted pressure garments while exposed to simulated mission conditions. Mission conditions were simulated to the extent possible with available altitude and temperature test facilities. Physical characterics of the garments were determined such as weight, pressure drop with flow, dimensional stability, visual fields, and acoustical attenuation. Author
