Award List:

HIGH SPEED PERSONNEL PARACHUTE ENERGY ABSORBER

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$49,075.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Horace m varner
Abstract:
A short-stroke energy absorber can be used to reduce parachute snatch force and the onset rate of the opening shock. such a device must operate with the desired opening shock forces and be nonelastic, light, small, in parallel with the risers, and not result in asymmetric suspension after parachute… More

FORCE AND PRESSURE/CONTACT INSTRUMENTATION FOR PARACHUTE HARNESSES

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$49,016.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Horace m varner
Abstract:
Parachute and harness designs need to be improved in order to permit paratrooper drops at higher speeds and low altitudes. little is known about how opening shock forces are transmitted to the parachute user. instrumentation is needed to assess the forces in the various straps of the harness during… More

PARACHUTE OPENING SHOCK LOAD LIMITING SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$68,664.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Horace M Varner
Abstract:
There is a need to shape the opening shock force-time pulse of a personnel parachute in order to obtain maximum deceleration with a minimum probability of injury to an ejectee. analysis of the biodynamics of parachute opening will be used to establish a maximum tolerable deceleration. design… More

AN IMPROVED UPPER TORSO HAULBACK AND INERTIA REEL SYSTEM FOR EJECTION SEATS

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1991 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$553,057.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Horace M Varner
Abstract:
Upper torso haulback must be completed rapidly to assure timely ejection under adverse conditions yet the haulback motion should not injure the pilot. design of a haulback system should include consideration of the biodynamics of the human body and associated restraint harness, the kinematics of the… More
