Abstract
A series of five tests on the Canadian Forces CT114 Tutor aircraft ejection seat was performed at the Impact Studies Facility, using the HyGe crash simulator. These impacts were used to determine the integrity of structural modifications to the lap-belt seat anchorages, and the support structure for the (MA-6) Ballistic Powered Inertial Reel (BPIR) within the headrest, for comparison with relatively recent military specifications for ejection seats. As a secondary objective, the lock-up performance of the BPIR was also observed at high crash severity levels, in both the automatic and locked modes of operation. The tests showed that the seat modifications met the pertinent military specifications, but that the seat itself failed the angle-impact portion of one of the specifications. TRUNCATED
