Abstract
Phase I revealed a high priority need for a human factorial lightweight protective helmet that extends an adequate personal communication system and 360 degree situational awareness, as well as ballistic protection of dismounted soldiers. The proposedresearch addresses two most critical design issues: (a) human factors concerns and, (b) practical concerns voiced by dismounted soldiers. A Design for Excellence will incorporate four tasks. Task 1 will perform in-depth human factors analyses.Deliverables from this task will be conceptual illustrations and technical performance parameters for the next generation of modular platforms. Task 2 will investigate improvements in ballistic and structural performance reducing head borne mass.Deliverables will include technical performance parameters for
