Brief anti-G compression principle history
All traditional G-protection systems around the world, even systems flown on 5th Generation Aircraft, rely on a Compression Principle dating back to the mid to late 1940’s.
Improvements were made over the decades to increase bladder coverage, hence compression surface of the initial «5 Bladder» G-protection pants, resulting in what is know as «Full Coverage» G-protection pants. Thermal burden also increased tremendously as a result, the legs being now covered entirely by a non-breathable Bladder material.
«Full Coverage» as these G-protection pants are described, does not translation into «Full Compression» as would be required. The entire Buttocks and good portions of the abdominal area cannot be compressed by the traditional Bladder system.
Only the new PNEUMATIC Compression Principle developped by G-NIUS, exemplified in «G-RAFFE Smart G-protection» Full Body Suit, and the new «G-RAFFE Smart G-Pants» are both able to exert the right amount of pressure to maintain sufficient blood flow and oxygenation in the brain, to avoid any A / G-LOCK while maintaining undisturbed concentration, situation awareness with diminished fatigue.
