Physiological Instrumentation of Pilots for Test and Operational Flights in Navy High Performance Jet Aircraft. Phase 1. Preliminary Investigations
Information is presented on the electrocardiogram and respiratory rate during spin tests of a supersonic carrier fighter airplane. Also presented are the accelerations encountered by a pilot, measured concurrently on the airplane seat frame and on his helmet during catapult launch, rapid accelerations and decelerations and rolls and under actual instrument flight conditions. Analysis of accelerations during actual instrument approaches may lead to better understanding and solution of the vertigo accident problem. An oximeter pick-up based on a new concept of operation and packaged with a miniaturized tape recorder for in-flight data link, now under development for flight test, is described.
