Abstract:

The memorandum report presents the results of an in-house net seat comfort study program to evaluate the comfort properties of the net seat concept for possible integration in future aerospace vehicles. A description of the experimental net seat delineator, with illustrations, is included. The three angular positions of special interest in vertically launched long duration space missions are defined. Two Appendices are included, the first discussing the area of discomfort and the second covering the results of a comfort study where the prototype tubular stainless steel net seat was utilized. The results indicate that this seating concept provides a high degree of comfort for both short and long duration up to 36 continuous hours occupancy and that further evaluation of this concepts capability during periods of relatively high sustained accelerations and low frequency vibrations should be investigated.
