High-altitude, partial pressure suits designed with double capstans, ventilation layers, and partial pressure and full pressure socks



High-altitude, partial pressure suits designed with double capstans, ventilation layers, and partial pressure and full pressure socks



U S A F Wright Air Develpm Cent Tech Rept 59(246): 1-12



This report deals with the resizing of the Type MC-4 suit (partial pressure, high-altitude, with g-bladder protection) to meet fitting requirements when selection is made by "Stature-Weight" selection charts. The resized suit is known as Type MC-4A. The design and construction of three prototypes of partial pressure suits having various features requiring evaluation in the effort to overcome certain problem areas are discussed. The development of pneumatic socks (both partial pressure and full pressure) for pressurizing the feet is also discussed.
