The Global War on Terror has brought various new challenges and demands to our war-fighters. Traumatic brain injury induced by blast impact has created a big threat to our soldiers and resulted in dire fatalities. The human physiological functions are stretched to the limits in endurance with the fatigue, stress, intense heat, and other extreme adversary conditions. In an extended flight mission, the pilot needs to remain on the seat for over 40 hours during which vigilance is required to performance various challenging tasks effectively. Engineers and scientists from Infoscitex use their knowledge, experience, and expertise to find innovative solutions for these new problems. Their work involves biodynamic testing, modeling, and simulation for aircrew protection and performance optimization; anthropometric measurement and modeling for aircrew accommodation and human-machine interfacing; biometric modeling and simulation for remote human identification and human-borne threat detection; data management including database development and data mining technology for information integration and decision making.
