Research Institution

Improved head and hearing protection is required for aircraft maintainers working on a carrier flight deck during launch and recovery operations. Legacy Flight Deck Cranials are inadequate in many aspects including hearing protection and impact protection. In previous work, Creare has developed a Flight Deck Cranial (FDC) that offers unparalleled hearing protection and industrial standard head protection in a modular system that is compatible with other equipment. The goal of this SBIR Phase II.5 is to adapt the Creare FDC to meet the needs of the Navy’s Triple Hearing Protection (THP) program. This portion of the program will perform the conceptual design and detailed design to bring the THP through a Critical Design Review (CDR) with NAVAIR.
