Cobham has received notification from the United States Air Force that the Mobile Aircrew Restraint System (MARS has been added to their Qualified Product Database QPD-8236.
Part numbers that are qualified to be manufactured and supplied
under QPD-8236 include the Mobile Aircrew Restraint System (MARS)
P/Ns 1855-012-04 and 1855-012-05 and the MARS lead-in strap P/N's
1612-075-01 and 1612-075-02.
Cobham's Mobile Aircrew Restraint System (MARS) was
developed to prevent highly mobile aircrew from being ejected
during a crash event, hard landing or rough weather when working
near open aircraft doors. The MARS which is currently flown in all
USAF HH-60G Pavehawks easily adapts to existing or emerging aircrew
harnesses or belts and increases aircrew comfort and safety by
eliminating webbing slack and allowing aircrew to concentrate on
their mission without constant strap length management. It
also minimizes tripping hazards during ground troop
insertion/extraction missions, and reduces aircrew-webbing
