DTIC AD1015868: Development of Accommodation Models for Soldiers in Vehicles: Squad : Defense Technical Information Center : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet ArchiveSkip to main content
Data from a previous study of Soldier posture and position were analyzed to develop statistical models to define accommodation in squad seating positions in military ground vehicles. Using methods previously developed for automotive applications, new models were created for eye location, head (helmet) contour, and knee contour for Soldiers in fixed seats. The models are applicable to a range of seat height and seat back angle. All of the models include the effects of body armor and body borne gear.
