DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
An aircraft crewman protective system properly positions the lower legs and feet of the crewman during emergency egress from an aircraft. The system includes a pair of plate members connected to swing outward from the under side of the crewmans console at each leg position and means of deploying the plate members at the time of ejection. Upon deployment, the plate members push the feet of the crewman backward guiding the feet and lower legs within a contact-free envelope during ejection without changing desired spinal position of the crewman.
