Description: The primary objectives of the Aviation Life Support Equipment Retrieval Program was to determine why aviation mishap occupant injuries happens and also to develop concepts and criteria for design improvements through the analysis of injuries and their correlation to retrieved aviation life support equipment (ALSE).Two ultimate goals of the ALSERP are to maintain and increase the level of protection during aircraft mishaps by collating and presenting clear injury and equipment failure data and trends to substantiate design improvements. The ASLERP building also explores alternative design concepts for the mitigation and reduction of crash induced injury. The renovation consisted of leaving most of the corridor and walls in place, but modifying portions of the existing wall configurations by adding new doors, ceilings, finishes, and equipment.
