June 2020 — Vibration Isolating Ergonomic Seats for E-2 Hawkeye

Safe was awarded this program’s continuation effort of SBIR Phases I and II under the United States Navy’s Topic N101-026, “Multi-Axis Vibration and Habitability Improvement for Seated Occupants.” The unique vibrations and flight characteristics of the E-2C/D aircraft cause significant crew discomfort, distraction, fatigue, and even pain. Safe will develop a new seat that will incorporate magnetorheological technology to help isolate the occupant from aircraft-generated vibrations and will optimize seating angles.
