Automated Modeling and Simulation Tool for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: THE UNIV. OF IOWA
Principal Investigator: Karim Abdel-Malek, Director, CCAD
Award Amount: $69,970.00
RI Contact: Twila F. Reighley
Abstract:
Today's Warfighter often carries an inordinate load that can lead to injuries and encumbered performance. Equipment is distributed among squad members with little, if any regard for differences in strength and anthropometry. Consequently, the current focus on human-centric design requires a… More

An Automated Tool for Predictive Neck Load Simulation During Individual Warfighting Maneuvers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Amos Patrick, Director of Engineering – (319) 354-2555
Award Amount: $99,922.00
Abstract:
As the focus on survivability, injury prevention, armor design, and human centric design increases, more attention must be paid to human modeling, especially with regards to the head and neck, not only for protection against ballistics and impact, but also for biomechanical issues as a result of… More

An Automated Tool for Predictive Neck Load Simulation During Individual Warfighting Maneuvers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Amos Patrick, Director of Engineering a – (319) 354-2555
Award Amount: $738,553.00
Abstract:
This effort will develop a comprehensive, validated toolkit to aid product designers and Government procurement personnel in evaluating alternative designs for head-borne equipment. In the first phase of this project, Viz-Tek, Inc. completed an initial concept for an advanced head-neck model that… More
