Air bag

Given the level of spending for both the plane and pilot, I wonder if an air bagsystem would help incorporated into the seat and the pilot's pressure suit. A bag designed to deploy as a neck brace tailored to the pilot plus something that could deploy from the seat to brace the spine from the seat to perhaps under the pilot's arms. That's off the top of my head so i am sure I will have missed something but spine and neck support rapidly seems to be part of what is called for. Alternatively an exo skeleton/seat arrangement, cue DARPA.
