Abstract:

The objectives of the study were 1 to determine the likelihood of motion sickness among combat troop passengers in certain Army aircraft expected to be available in the 1970-75 time frame, and 2 if this likelihood should be significantly high, to describe means of amelioration. The methods employed were as follows 1 A review of the pertinent aeromedical literature was conducted 2 During the literature review, the motion sickness phenomena described in the literature were related to available information on the flight envelopes anticipated for the aircraft involved 3 Upon completion of the literature review, consultations were held with members of the staff of the U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory and the U.S. Naval Aerospace Medical Institute.
