9781249371670: Lightweight Pilot Helmets: The Issue of Weight Versus Protection

This study addresses the problem of reducing the weight of pilot helmets while retaining relevant protective qualities. Existing helmet development standards are synthesized and compared in light of compatibility, objectivity and standardization. The issue of decreased protection, as a result of weight reduction, is discussed in view of pilot opinion, accident experience, contemporary research and recent compromises in helmet development. The investigation reveals distinct ambiguities in helmet development standards and incongruities between standards. The study recommends the deletion of penetration standards since they are incompatible with impact standards and prevent industry from using new materials to achieve light weight. Further, the study proposes a change to military specification MIL-H-83147 (USAF) that reflects the deletion of penetration standards and recognizes current technological developments.
