Abstract:

The design and anaysis of aircraft seating, restraint and interior systems requires careful consideration of human factors relating to the mission to be performed and to the characteristics of the occupant. If comparisons are to be made among different system concepts, it is desirable to have a uniform basis for describing the characteristics of the human occupant and of any tools used as a human surrogate in the design, analysis or evaluation of the system. To this end, the U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory initiated an effort for the promotion of a tri-service Standard Man military specification in February 1980. The immediate goal of that effort was to develop a specification for body dimensions, joint locations, sitting heights, and mass distribution of military aircrewmen. A meeting was held in March 1980 to discuss this effort and to establish a program to accomplish the work.
