- Standard ATD 131-001
The Parachute Dummy (Torso Dummy) was developed to test parachutes and harnesses.
- The Parachute Dummy (Torso Dummy) has evolved into its present form primarily on the basis of continued use by United States government parachute test groups.
- The present version is the most rugged dummy ever developed - it is capable of withstanding repeated free falls with minimal or no damage.
- The Parachute dummy represents a 95th percentile 6 foot 1 inch tall male.
- The weight is 188 lbs allowing for 23 lbs instrumentation to achieve 211 lbs the normal weight of a young male of this stature.
- The configuration is a torso with stub legs and kick plate to allow parachute harness engagement.
- The stub arms and neck are represented by machined brass caps.
- The Torso is rugged white vinyl, over a steel skeleton, allowing ground camera tracking.
- The Torso has an internal instrumentation cavity and internal battery cavity with internal wiring connections.
- Instrumentation may include telemetry, angular and linear accelerometers at the discretion of the testing range.
