Research Institution
The purpose of this multi-phase program is to develop emerging technology and implement innovative designs for lightweight, crashworthy, and rapidly stowable and removable troop seats for military helicopters.  The troop seats will provide a level of crashworthy protection equivalent to the seats in the cockpit. BENEFITS: Wolfs seat system design is performance oriented and is sufficiently flexible to apply to a variety of commercial and military applications.  It adapts equally well to any seated occupant, from the idle crewmember or passenger to the highly task-oriented aircrew.
