September 2018 — Air Platform Passive Occupant Protection

Safe was awarded a Phase I SBIR program from the United States Army to address and remedy problems with current passive occupant restraint systems in helicopters. These restraint systems do not adequately restrict occupants’ upper torso/head motion during a crash event with a combined forward and vertical acceleration component. Safe will be developing a new passive occupant restraint system to reduce the occupant’s motion during these types of crash events. Safe’s new restraint system is also anticipated to be more intuitive, simpler, and easier to use.
