For the U.S. military and NASA, Anthrotech's research has assisted in designing uniforms and clothing, space suits, workspace environments, and oxygen masks and gloves for high performance aviators. We have worked closely with the U.S. Air Force for a number of years in solving cockpit accommodation problems.

Anthrotech has assisted the U.S. Access Board in its efforts to update accessibility and workspace guidelines for people with disabilities, and has worked with other agencies including the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, in resolving design and fit questions related to body size.

Anthrotech has been involved in the design and implementation of every major body size survey of U.S. military personnel conducted in the past 51 years. Notably, surveys of U.S. Air Force men and women in 1967 and 1968 and Army personnel in 1988 serve as standards and are widely used by a number of other agencies.



In the mid-'80's, Anthrotech began working with the U.S. Air Force in selecting, adapting, and using a three-dimensional measuring system (a laser scanner). We helped the Air Force assemble the first 3-D database of head and face dimensions, and have since then contracted with other military and civilian agencies to collect and analyze 3-dimensional data.

Anthrotech often works for clients directly, but sometimes works as a part of a larger team. As a subcontractor, Anthrotech developed glove sizing systems, techniques for applying anthropometric data to glove pattern design, and glove fit tests for the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and the U.S. Forestry Service. Anthrotech is currently supplying subcontractor support to analyze fit test data on a variety of protective ensembles for the U.S. Navy to improve garment patterns, size selection charts, and tariffs.
