Flame Resistant Advanced Air Crew Ensemble (AACE)

Part #1012-AACE-J, #1012-AACE-P

The Advanced Air-Crew Ensemble (AACE) is a next generation design that shares all fundamental appearance and fit characteristics with existing DOD utility uniforms, while incorporating design features essential to operation on non-ejection aviation platforms — such as zippered pocket closures and the elimination of close quarter snag hazards.

The  AACE is constructed  from  the latest  state-of-the-art flame resistant and anti-static fabrics, chosen for their exceptional protection, light weight, durability, and comfort. These fabrics represent the latest advancements in protective textile technology and meet or exceed all DOD standards for flame resistance  and  no melt/drip.

The AACE’s unique top-to-bottom attachment feature protects the wearer from flame and thermal threats, in the same manner that a one-piece coverall would. Its revolutionary detachable design allows for improved dexterity and increased air-flow, as well as removal of the jacket while not in operation.

Burn Testing:

On July 25, 2012 detailed burn testing was conducted on the Serket AACE at North Carolina State University’s Textile Protection and Comfort Center (T-PACC) PyroMan™ Systemas specified by ASTM F 1930-11 – with a 4 second 2 cal. exposure – resulting in an 18.85% burn injury prediction. This result far exceeds most commercially available systems as well as the standard which calls for

Additionally, the Serket AACE is the first two-piece system to be burn analyzed un-tucked – the way it is most commonly worn in service.
