Abstract : A method is presented for objectively measuring the relative effectiveness of various G protective equipment or techniques by comparing the quantitative response of a subject's mean Doppler flow velocity signal to a series of modest G profiles when using each protective system in turn. The method is applied to evaluate two configurations of the Navy's new servo controlled anti-G valve in comparison with the standard ALAR valve during exposure to G profile having various rates of G onset.
