The results of a study conducted to develop an improved helmet suspension system for use with the U. S. Armys M-1 Helmet and liner are presented. Initial program effort concentrated on the definition of design requirements. Analysis was conducted to evaluate projectile impact energies, and a new criteria for heavy object impact was proposed. The concept known as the Hook and Pile Suspension System was selected for final design effort and subsequent fabrication of 50 production units.
