Abstract : NBDL -Gx acceleration rhesus experiments are compared to the results of Clarke et. al with baboons using the Air Force shoulder harness-lap belt restraint. Baboons are shown to have significantly less tolerance to -Gx acceleration. The differential effect of peak sled acceleration is shown to be the same for each species. The statistical models used are logistics response functions of peak sled acceleration and the initial yaw angle of the head.
