Personal Area Network for Warfighter Physiological Status Monitoring (WPSM)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
During Phase I, AWare developed hardware, firmware, and software for a bench-testable prototype inductive near-field Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) for Warfighter Physiological Status Monitoring (WPSM). We tested and characterized that prototype, which includes multiple channels with error correction. Here, we review the results of Phase I, and relate the results back to Phase I, Phase I Option, and Phase II requirements as enumerated in the original topic solicitation. For Phase II, we propose to continue development of the Phase I system (including process engineering and preliminary field testing) and then to explore alternative technologies to produce one or more alternative prototypes. AWare will select the best among the alternatives and the original designs, and will produce the 10 prototype WPAN systems that are suitable for field trials and performance measurements. Furthermore, we address commercialization in detail. We identify potential markets and customers. We discuss in detail the surrounding technologies and collaboration with providers of associated and complementary technologies.
