Due to mission oriented high-G maneuvers, physiological parameters of the fighter plane pilot undergo dramatic changes leading to stress accumulation. Real time stress monitoring of pilots through non-invasive wireless sensors in Body Area Network (BAN) can dramatically alter the situation where ground based servers can be alerted indicating that pilot’s physiological condition is beyond normal. Preventive means can be employed then to recall pilot or abort mission. Successful implementation of BAN with the help of wireless sensors have been carried out to monitor ambulatory patients as well as life assisted products however, to implement the same on a young, healthy individual like pilot imposes a challenging task. The present paper offers solution in terms of single biomedical parameter signal from Electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring with only essential details pertaining to high-G related stress, its synthesis, pick up technique from the pilot body for transmission over a digital data channel from BAN to ground based server.
Keywords: ‘G’ , A-LOC, G-LOC, BAN, ECG, fighter pilot.
