A-12, YF-12A and SR-71 full pressure suit with integrated subsystems, parachute harness, automatic flotation system, urine collection device, redundant pressure control and breathing system, thermal protective garment. Custom fitted or in 12 standard sizes and various models.

Having evolved from its remote ancestor, the original David Clark XMC-2-DC suit first produced in 1956, the Pilot's Protective Assembly (PPA) model S901 worn by the first SR-71 crews, was initially produced for the Lockheed A-12 program in the early 60s. This garment evolved through several improved models that resulted in the S1030 suit.
