Abstract:

Using sketches of nine present and futuristic helmet forms, a survey was conducted to develop techniques to evaluate a user populations esthetic preferences for military helmets. The results showed that the M1 helmet had a high level of acceptance based on esthetic qualities. It was concluded that it is possible to find regularities in esthetic preference and that the M1 helmet can be used as a suitable reference style. An index is proposed to provide for comparison of the reference and candidate helmet forms.
