Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF REMOTE MONITORING OF HUMAN CORE TEMPERATURE WITHOUT ANY PHYSICAL LINK WITH THE TEST SUBJECT. TEMPERATURE SENSING WILL BE CARRIED OUT BY AN INDUCTIVELY-COUPLED, INGESTED RADIOCAPSULE. IN PHASE I, AN EXISTING RADIOCAPSULE SYSTEM WILL BE UPGRADED AND ADAPTED TO MEET ARMY REQUIREMENTS. THIS UPGRADED SYSTEM WILL INCLUDE A RADIOCAPSULE, A BELT-MOUNTED TRANSPONDER AND A REMOTE DATALOGGER. THE SYSTEM WILL BE ASSEMBLED AND TESTED INVITRO IN A THERMAL WATER BATH. BATH TEMPERATURE, CAPSULE ORIENTATION AND TRANSMISSION RANGE WILL BE VARIED DURING THE TEST. THE DATA WILL BE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE (A) THE PRECISION AND ACCURACY OF THE TEMPERATURE READING, (B) THE MAXIMUM TRANSMISSION RANGE, (C) THE EFFECT OF CHANGES IN CAPSULE ORIENTATION, AND (D) THE BATTERY LIFE. THESE RESULTS WILL BE USED TO IDENTIFY THE REFINEMENTS NEEDED (IF ANY) TO MAKE THE SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR ARMY USE. IN PHASE II, THE REQUIRED REFINEMENTS WILL BE IMPLEMENTED AND THE SYSTEM EVALUATED WITH HUMAN SUBJECTS.
