Phase 1
Fiscal Year: 2007
Title: A Mission-Specific Equipment Optimization Toolkit (MEOT) for the Dismounted Infantryman
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00014-07-M-0309
Award Amount: $69,999.00
 

Abstract:

The overall objective of this STTR is the development, validation, and delivery of an analysis toolkit based on an advanced integrated physics based virtual model of the dismounted infantryman. This model will include the ergonomic, physical, and cognitive interactions between the warfighter, his equipment and his environment. The resulting Mission-Specific Equipment Optimization Toolkit (MEOT) will provide a mechanism for evaluating the effect of different equipment interfaces and task procedures on accomplishment of mission objectives. Phase I of this work will develop requirements, performance drivers, and modeling constraints that lay the foundation for simulating the Virtual Dismounted Infantryman. Phase II will develop a functional MEOT prototype, incorporating the features identified in Phase I along with further research required to validate use of the toolkit for evaluating infantry equipment and equipment interfaces. Phase III will produce a fully functional and validated MEOT model and toolkit.
