Abstract : An anti-G valve and control system for providing a multivariable, multi-profile, pressurization of aircrew anti-G garments are disclosed. The ramp characteristic, the ramp onset level, a step onset, the step level, a limit pressure, are all controllable over the normal operating range. In addition, an optional ready pressure control is provided to just fill the anti-G suit volume and greatly decrease inflation time required to reach higher pressures. (Author)
