Research Institution

The Tactile Orientation GArment (TOGA) will be integrated with tactile cueing devices in a flexible wearable garment to reduce aviation mishaps by non-visually enhancing and preserving aircrew situation awareness (SA) through the mitigation of spatial disorientation (SD) – a potentially deadly condition that results from loss of visual references, physiological responses to gravitoinertial forces (GIF), and/or hypoxia experienced during flight. Triton Systems will develop and design a concept for a user-friendly interface for a system for receiving and presenting aircraft flight parameters, threat warning information, and GPS location via tactile transducers.
