Abstract : This report presents a derived database describing the anthropometry of a potential future United States Naval/Marine Corps (hereafter referred to as 'Naval') aviation population. The creation of this database was in response to a Congressional mandate to expand present design specifications to ensure that future military equipment will fit a larger proportion of the United States population. By accommodating more people, occupational choices will not be substantially limited by fit and accommodation issues. Anthropometric databases containing extensive body size and shape information are critical for the proper design and sizing of military clothing, equipment, and workstations. The last anthropometric survey of Naval aviators was conducted in 1964 on men only. No valid anthropometric data has been collected on female aviators. Statistical matching procedures were used to create an updated Naval aviation anthropometric database of 70 dimensions for males and females from the 1988 ANSUR. The summary statistics and descriptions of the 70 selected dimensions are presented along with correlations, regression equations, and bivariate frequency tables. This database should be used with the caution that because it represents a future population, it cannot be known how well it will represent that population. Future changes in immigration trends, military induction policy, and other variables may affect representivity. Nonetheless, this database represents a scientific, rational approach toward complying with the Congressional mandate.
