Abstract:

The objective of this research study was to investigate effects of the JSF ejection seat geometry, restraint system, and helmet system on the response of human volunteer subjects and ATDs during the catapult phase of ejection. The data collected during this program will be used to evaluate whether there is potential for injury risk to crewmembers due to the JSF specific seat parameters andor helmet system, and to identify the underlying causes and recommend appropriate mitigation strategies. A secondary objective was to employ the human and ATD response data for development and validation of biodynamic models, including Finite ElementFE and neck and spinal injury models.
