Abstract : The technical objective of this program is the development of a support system for the aviator's helmet wherein the load created by the helmet and helmet mounted equipment is removed from the aviator's head and is transferred directly to the aviator's seat and airframe. The Support system, while supporting the helmet load, shall be powered and controlled to move with the aviator's head such that the helmet is retained on the aviator's head in a normal manner. The support system shall provide freedom of head movement and allow the aviator to easily control the movement of his/her head, his/her helmet and the helmet mounted equipment. The technical objective of this program is being undertaken in the form of a multi-task program as outlined in the proposal. The objectives of the individual tasks are presented below.
