Abstract:

The study discusses the development and test of a foursize Height-Weight sizing program of partial pressure and exposure suits designed for the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force. The sizing program is based upon an anthropometric survey of over 200 subjects, conducted at five air bases throughout Japan during the spring of 1961. The statistical rationale used in devising the Height-Weight program is presented along with the analysis of the anthropometric data. Two garments, the CSU - 7P Partial Pressure Assembly and the CWU - 13P Exposure Garment, were fabricated in accordance with the developed sizing program. A fit-test of these garments was conducted at Hamamatsu and Tachikawa Air Bases, Japan, in April 1963. The results of the fit-tests served to validate the soundness of the basic survey data and subsequent development of the HeightWeight sizing program.
