May 2019 — Thermoelectrically Cooled Cushion for Dynamically Qualified Seats

Safe was awarded a Phase I SBIR program by the U.S. Navy/NAVAIR to develop a thermoelectrically cooled seat cushion to improve aircrew mission endurance and effectiveness. Effective cooling will prevent heat stress by limiting mission durations and reducing the detriment to concentration on mentally demanding tasks that reduces mission effectiveness. Safe’s innovative design will also address complaints reported by aircrew over back pain, inadequate padding, and loss of sensation in the legs with existing seat cushions by distributing pressure more uniformly across the body.
