Final Report - HELISAFE TA (Helicopter Occupant Safety Technology Application)

Project ID: 502727
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final report of the HELISAFE TA project, which aimed to improve the survivability of occupants in case of helicopter crashes and to minimise the risk of severe injuries in both cockpit and cabin. HELISAFE TA provides a safety concept which does not yet exist in Europe and a validated numerical simulation tool to predict typical crash scenarios and to simulate the response load on the human body with respect to the interaction of safety equipment.

The report begins with a summary of the project background and aims. It presents the contractors involved and then explains the scientific and technical objectives of the project. Finally, it presents the project's achievements and assesses its success and potential impact.
