Abstract : An automated anthropometric data measurement system includes a standing measuring assembly and a seated measuring assembly to determine pertinent anthropometric features of aviators being screened for assignment to particularly suitable aircraft is described in this patent. Both assemblies have a plurality of position sensors and measuring probes which are selectively placed by an operator upon the aviator, each measuring probe producing a digital data signal indicative of the particular feature measured when selective position sensors indicate body contact. The signals are then collected by a microcomputer which compares them to a predetermined population and outputs the compared data to magnetic storage media.
