Integrated Aircrew Ensemble (IAE)

Aircrew deserve the very best protective equipment when facing operational challenges. IAE’s configurable and modular design employs state-of-the-art materials and designs, integrated protective layers, and modern manufacturing methods to meet current and future mission requirements. IAE is designed to satisfy current and future aircrew and logistics demands.

The IAE accommodates various crew positions and missions around the world. As applicable to the aircraft and its associated missions, the IAE provides system integration with aircraft and AFE and protection under the following conditions:

  • Acceleration (ejection seat aircraft)
  • Altitude (ejection seat aircraft only)
  • Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) situations
  • Flotation situations
  • Exposure to cold/heat/flames
  • Exposure to Chemical, Biological, and Radiological (CBR) threats
