Abstract
The aim of the study was to evaluate the compatibility of the M1 and U.S. PASGT helmets with the 84mm Short Range Anti-Armour Weapon (SRAAW), in each of the telescopic optical and CLASS sight configurations. Twelve militia soldiers (11 male and 1 female), with experience firing the 84mm SRAAW, were selected from the helmet bid assessment trial to evaluate the comptability of the M1 and PASGT helmets with the telescopic optical and CLASS sights. Subjects were required to adopt a prone firing posture and sight on a silhouette tank target. A prone firing posture was chosen as the most likely firing posture to elicit compatility concerns with a helmet. Human Factors (HF) observers evaluated compatibility with each sight condition and commented on compatibility and sighting performance issues.
