Detail of an unknown connector sticking out from the bottom of the helmet.

This normally would not be visible on the helmet when attached for flight. I'm uncertain whether this is some sort of internal connector which would attach to the suit (e.g., perhaps from a biomedical sensor) or (since this is a training suit) whether this is peculiar to some training exercise.
