Paper Abstract

Sweden is one of the world's smallest countries with a domestic aircraft industry. Since the 1950's Sweden has produced fixed-wing aircraft like the J29 'the flying barrel', J32 Lansen, J35 Draken, JA/AJS 37 Viggen and today the JAS 39 Gripen. The Gripen aircraft is a small lightweight multi-role aircraft adapted to the needs of the Swedish Air Force. The Swedish Defence Material Administration is conducting a study of an integrated helmet system suitable for the specific Swedish conditions. The objective of the study is to define a requirement specification for an integrated helmet system intended for a future version or retrofit of the JAS 39 Gripen aircraft. To meet the technical, tactical and economical requirements the call was for an interdisciplinary approach with participants from the industry, the medical society and the pilot community. This paper will discuss some of these requirements and possible solutions.
