Military Aircraft Emergency Escape & Amp; Ejection 1

Canopy or transparency removal systems are recommended in military aircraft ejections to prevent elevated levels of head and neck load on the aircrew and potential injuries, with methods including canopy jettison and canopy fracturing using materials like acrylic, polycarbonate, or laminate, while the sequencing of the escape system is achieved through interconnected explosive transfer lines and various components to ensure a safe and proper order of events for canopy removal and seat ejection.
