|Publication Date:||24 August 2015|
This specification covers all U.S. Army military vehicle interior head impact protective components and materials intended for purposes of providing energy absorption for head injury protection of military vehicle occupants (mounted crew/warfighter). The intent of the requirements stated in this document are to generate interior head impact protective vehicle component designs and material selection, which are capable of withstanding the vehicle operating and storage conditions, as well as the high velocity, multi-directional forces associated with blast, crash and rollover events. The contractor should design and fabricate vehicle specific interior head impact protective components and materials which are capable of complying with the vehicle specific operating, storage mission related conditions including consideration for blast, crash and rollover and interior fire related events. This document should be used in conjunction with the vehicle specific detailed performance specification which entails requirements tailored to the intended vehicle specific design, protection location(s) and associated geometry. The vehicle detailed performance specification and associated contractual documents supersede the requirements stated herein, according to vehicle specific mission requirements. Where vehicle specific requirements are absent, the requirements of this document should apply.
