This report summarizes the effort to develop an improved inflatable restraint system. The objective was to provide frontal crash protection up to 50 mph for front seat occupants without undue hazards to out-of-position occupants during deployment. The inflation concept that was developed and proven successful for this program consisted of a dual bag design - a low pressure aspirator inflator filled head bag and a high pressure augmented inflator filled torso bag. The knee and femur load were cushioned by a fixed crushable restraint. Based on the results of 27 sled tests it is concluded that this system can be effective in meeting MVSS208 injury criteria at speeds to 50 mph. /AUTHOR/
