Abstract:

The most important human factors requirements for the design of rigidly armored seat and groin protective units for the seated helicopter aircrewmen are discussed. Included are requirements for preventing interference with mission performance, reducing fatigue and providing a compatible, safe and somewhat comfortable working environment for the fully-equipped aircrewman. Quantitative design criteria for dimensions, contours, cushioning and location of the seat and groin protective units are specified.
