The assessment of high-cycle fatigue reliability for helicopter components has been of particular interest to the helicopter community as of late. This reliability analysis typically relies on empirical S/N relationships, Miner’s rule for damage summation, and probabilistic models for . Using our unique Visual Ergonomics (VE) software the complete cockpit design can be represented at any time of day or night, in any environmental condition, and at any point on the globe. This high performance simulation provides real time feedback on the legibility of control panels and instruments, the dangerous effects of glare from the sun. The open architecture of CAAS systems is based on the software and hardware flying on the KC Strato-Tanker cockpit, which takes advantage of existing technology and commercial components. The protective helmet currently in use by infantry soldiers in the U.S. Army was developed in the early s and was last tested for its ergonomic suitability in (McManus et al., ). In the intervening 20 years, crucial advances have taken place in the technologies of ballistic protection.
