Abstract
Techshot's ideal solution for a multi axis vibration damping insert (MVDI) will provide the Navy with a functional system to reduce crew member fatigue and injuries due to mid to high frequency propeller vibrations transmitted through the current seat cushion as well as reduction of hot spots created by pressure points induced by the seat cushion. The MVDI mitigated shock and vibration by isolating the pilot's seat and back from the E-2C seat using state of the art vibration isolation systems. The system is expected to add less than five pounds to the weight of the current seating system. It is a reliable design requiring no additional electrical support or seat or aircraft modifications. It is anticipated that the system will eliminate at least 90% of the vibration transmitted through the current seating system. Implementation of the MVDI system does not require aircraft modifications or requalification of the seating system.
