Abstract
A FEASIBILITY STUDY OF MEANS OF WEIGHT REDUCTION IN CRASHWORTHY ARMORED CREWSEATS OF THE TYPE USED IN NEWER ARMY HELICOPTERS. THE STUDY SHALL FOCUS PRIMARILY ON THREE APPROACHES TO WEIGHT REDUCTION: A LIGHTER ARMOR SYSTEM THROUGH ADVANCED MATERIALS AND/OR PROCESSES, A LIGHTER STRUCTURE THROUGH THE USE OF HIGH-STRENGTH FIBER COMPOSITE CONSTRUCTION, AND REDUCED PARASITIC WEIGHT THROUGH ADVANCED DYNAMIC ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES. THE FEASIBILITY STUDIES WILL BE SUPPORTED BY SAMPLE TESTS OF ARMOR AND COMPOSITES.
