Abstract:

NAVAIRSYSCOM AIR-531 tasked us to investigate and develop new procedures for determining the ranges and limitations of anthropometric accommodation in military aircraft. These procedures quantify what types of aircrew based on their bodys morphologies - are able to safely and efficiently operate a particular crewstation in an operational environment. Aircrew Anthropometric Accommodation Assessment provides detailed, repeatable methods for obtaining the accommodation data needed to determine this. Results are plotted to determine the full range of anthropometric values and their relationship to pilotaircrew fit for a number of important areas. Use of Aircrew Anthropometric Accommodation Assessment enables the establishment of Anthropometric Restriction Codes, reduces the need for fit-checks, guides Student Naval Aviators into appropriate pipelines, determines contractor compliance with design goals, and identifies deficiencies in the crewstation layout of mockups and aircraft undergoing development....
