Abstract:

At the request of NDHQ, DCIEM evaluated several proposed Automatic Inflation Device AID pocket modifications for the high performance jet aircrew life preserver. Two Irvin proposals and two modified pockets developed at DCIEM were compared with the existing AID pocket in terms of manual pull force and automatic inflation times. Although no significant differences were noted between the four prototypes, an improved AID pocket resulting from DCIEMDAES collaboration was considered best suited for CF use. Author
