The requirements for an acceleration-induced loss of consciousness (G-LOC) warning and recovery system (G-WARS) are discussed, and the approach being pursued is described. A combination of sensors will work together with an acceleration monitor to formulate an accurate assessment of pilot consciousness. Warnings will be issued to prevent G-LOC from occurring, possibly in the form of a slight pulsing of the pressure exerted by the anti-G suit. If the physiologic insult continues beyond the limits of the G-limit warning system, an auto-recovery sequence will be initiated. Timing constraints are addressed, and the testing of a G-WARS system is considered. The use of G-WARS in tactical aircraft is discussed.<>
