Local Air Force Research Laboratory, or AFRL, scientists and engineers along with U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School students prepare for the Integrated Cockpit Sensing, or ICS, system to be flight tested on an F-16 at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., March 12, 2024. An AFRL team developed the ICS system to provide an airworthy platform for comprehensive physiological, life-support and environmental monitoring to improve pilot safety and performance. The system has helmet-based, base layer and life-support sensors, ensuring holistic information on the pilot and operating environment during flight.
