Helicopter Aircrew Restraint
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The purpose of this project is to develop magnetic technology to be incorporated into aircrew restraint system designs that will address limitations of current restraint systems in protecting crewmembers in the full range of dynamic flight environments. The new restraint technology will supply a continuum of restraint level that will automatically adapt to the severity of the flight dynamics of the aircraft, while still allowing crewmembers the necessary freedom of movement during normal flight conditions. It will be compatible with inertia reel technology used on the lap and shoulder harnesses for the cockpit crew and seated cabin crewmembers. It will also be applicable for use on the tethers used by cabin crew that move about the aircraft during flight. The technology will be aircraft-independent, so that it can be retrofitted into existing airframes, or incorporated into new designs of more modern aircraft.
