Abstract : The results of an anthropometric survey of USAF personnel wearing the A/P22S-2 Full Pressure Suit fitted in accordance with the USAF Eight-Size, Height-Weight Sizing Program are presented. One hundred and thirty-eight measures were taken on each of thirty-four subjects standing, sitting and supine, with the suit in the uninflated, inflated, and inflated-restrained conditions. Forty circumferences were measured on a separate sample of thirty-two subjects standing and sitting, with the suit uninflated and inflated. Pictorial and verbal descriptions of the dimensions and detailed numerical results, including clearance ranges, are presented. Graphs comparing various dimensions across suit sizes are presented in the Appendix. (Author)
