Abstract:

This report concerns Phase III, Part II of a research program to determine systems and materials that can be used to attenuate, to a tolerable limit, the forces imposed by high impact in both ejection and non-ejection seats. The goal of this research effort was to determine the optimum design criteria for energy absorbers that would best protect the pilots and passengers of fighter, helicopter and troop transport aircraft.
