Abstract

G-suits have changed over the years since Dr. Wilbur Franks invented the first anti-g suit. For the past decade the United States Air Force has been using the Combat Edge ensemble and the associated L-1 straining maneuver. The Air Force is now testing the Libelle Self-contained Anti-G Ensemble (SAGE); it uses a unique Libelle Straining Maneuver (LSM). The suit and the straining maneuver were determined to be valid; however, the effects of negative transfer must be addressed or it will have a significant impact on the success of this program.
