Abstract:

This report describes the work completed during the first project year of this research study. The objective of the study is to identify safe weight and location limits of head-supported devices worn by female aviators during simulated helicopter rides. The working hypothesis is that female pilots will tolerate some range of HSD weight moments beyond which their biomechanical and performance responses will deteriorate. The report contains a review of relevant studies followed by detailed description of the experimental and analytical procedures.
