Abstract:

The volume contains the text, discussion and technical evaluation of papers presented at the AGARD Aerospace Medical Panel Meeting which was held on 16-20 September 1974, in Pozzuoli Naples, Italy. The meeting was convened to highlight areas illustrative of the current status in aerospace medicine and to indicate some of the directions in which this field will proceed in the coming years. Eight papers were presented treating a broad range of topics, including such considerations as habitability factors in the design of future space systems, ejection problems, and health and career management issues in the military services. Some of the papers were highly applied in nature, and some reported research at a basic level. All were concerned with the medical support of man in new and future aerospace systems.
