Abstract:

The AMRL Impulse Accelerator impact test facility serves the needs of the USAF for research and development in crash safety and ejection seat testing. The facility located at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, is used primarily for establishing tolerable human acceleration limits and developing protective restraint concepts. This report is basically an operations manual for the Impulse Accelerator System. It describes the operation and performance of the HYGE actuator, the instrumentation systems, the photo systems, the safety and control systems and the data reduction systems. Also included are descriptions of test set-up procedures and maintenance requirements.
