USSR GSH-6A PILOT SPACE AVIATION RARE air helmet
USSR GSH-6A PILOT SPACE AVIATION RARE air helmet. The use of GSH-6 and its difference from oxygen masks. Hermetic helmet GSH-6A, GSH-6M, are used to perform high-altitude flights of more than 14 km. Unlike the mask, the helmet completely isolates the pilot's head from the external hostile environment, while it has all the functions of an oxygen mask. The main feature of GSH is that it provides full compensation for the head with excessive pressure in the lungs, in fact, the pressure in the lungs is almost equal to the pressure in the under-helmet space, thanks to this, oxygen entering a person under pressure does not try to find a natural loophole through the ears and eye slits. The design of the GSH-6 is quite complex and has more than three hundred parts. The GSH-6 has three main separate elements: the helmet consists of a helmet (1) with an electrically heated inspection plate (2), a headset, a neck ring and a pull-up system. 2-viewing panel with electrically heated glass (heated windshield on cars, made on the same principle, appeared a few decades later).
6-bayonet connector for connecting to an oxygen device. 7-GSH fixing pins in the neck ring. 8-Handle for lowering and locking the viewing panel. 9-Check box for remote lowering of the filter.
11 - Hose of the back-up line of the compensated exhalation valve. 12-Connector of the communication line harness and the electric heating device of the inspection panel. 13-Air distribution openings for ventilation of the GSH-6A under-helmet space. 14-Straps for fixing the GSH-6A hose to the pilot's suspension system to prevent separation in the event of an ejection.
