Abstract : The U.S. Army Aviation and Troop Command (ATCOM), Program Manager for Aviation Life Support Equipment (PM-ALSE), funded USAARL to procure and evaluate the Navy HGU-84/P against the U.S. Army HGU-56/P performance requirements. The performance areas evaluated included: impact protection, weight, center of mass, chinstrap strength, shell tear resistance, dynamic retention, and sound attenuation. Only the center of mass requirement was met by the HGU-84/P configuration. None of the other HGU-56/P requirements were fully met. The helmet performed equally as well as the HGU-56/P in the dynamic retention evaluation.
