Abstract:

Three principles for high delethalization within the cockpit are given 1 the elimination of sharp, elongated, brittle, pointed, or similarly shpaed objects within the envelope of motion of the occupant in a given location 2 the use of a body-restraint system, consisting of a belt and shoulder harness capable of withstanding 25 gs and 3 the provision of body-segment decelerations by the use of mirror-image sandwich material in cockpit structure. An example of a delethalized cockpit is also given. Author
