Abstract:

The purpose of this document is to establish full-spectrum crashworthiness criteria for implementation starting in the initial stages of system design for a wide range of rotorcraft classes, types, configurations, and operating conditions that continue over the life cycle of the rotorcraft system. These criteria will identify the key components that contribute to a systems crashworthiness and will provide a quantitative measure of crashworthy performance that is relevant to user needs and future operating environments.
