Abstract Ingress and egress evaluation of both current and prototype H-60A/L rotorcraft troop seating was completed by 711HPW/RHCP and performed at HX-21 Squadron, Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division, Patuxent River, MD on December 2011. The H-60A/L troop seat, a prototype all-fabric troop seat by Glatz Aeronautical, and a prototype seat by Wolf Technical Services were tested. Ten examples of each seat were installed in a MH-60S rotorcraft per seat configuration, and multiple ingress and egress trials were performed by Marines from Marine Corp Base Quantico, VA outfitted in battle gear. Ingress and egress times were averaged and compared using a one-way ANOVA to determine statistical differences between seats. The H-60A/L seat had a statistically significant lower ingress time compared to the Glatz and Wolf seats. The H- 60A/L seat had a statistically lower egress time from the Wolf seat, though no difference was shown between the H-60A/L and Glatz seats as well as the Glatz and Wolf seats. Whether or not these differences are operationally significant is beyond the scope of this study.
