Abstract:

The report concerns modern and future fighter aircraft with maneuvering capabilities that now are beginning to exceed the G force limitations of man, particularly with regard to such effects on mans pulmonary, cardiovascular, and labyrinthine systems. Protective mechanisms are discussed that have potential for exceeding mans unprotected tolerance research at many laboratories is discussed. The report considers that 9 G 30-sec duration acceleration is likely to be tolerable and that the solution will probably involve a compromise between posture, straining, pilot selection, and anti-G suits rather than the use of any single technique exclusively. Twelve fruitful research areas are outlined for future laboratory effort. Author
