Abstract:

BATTLEFIELD ENVIRONMENTS POSE CONFLICTING PERSONAL HEARING SENSITIVITYAND PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS. INTERPERSONAL VERBAL COMMUNICATIONS CAN IMPROVE THE EFFICIENCY OF MANNED OPERATIONS UNDER THESE ENVIRONMENTS; HOWEVER, TEMPORARY AND/OR PERMANENT HEARING DAMAGE CAN RESULT IF NO PROTECTIVE HEADGEAR IS WORN. ACTIVE, ELECTRONIC RELAY SUBSYSTEMS, INTEGRATED WITH PASSIVE BLOCKING, DAMPING, AND SUPPORTIVE STRUCTURES, ARE FORESEEN AS A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM. A TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT WILL BE MADE TO YIELD QUANTIFIABLE BOUNDS ON PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS. CANDIDATE ELECTRONIC DESIGNS WILL BE EVALUATED AGAINST DERIVED CRITERIA AND PROTOTYPES WILL BE FABRICATED AND TESTED. CONCEPTS FOR ANALOG AND DIGITAL ELECTRONIC SIGNAL DETECTION, CONDITIONING, AND LIMITING ARE PROPOSED FOR ANLYSIS, DESIGN, PROTOTYPING, AND QUALITATIVE TESTING DURING PHASE I. PROMISING CANDIDATES WILL BE SELECTED FOR MORE SOPHISTICATED PACKAGING AND COMPREHENSIVE TESTING UNDER CONTROLLED CONDITIONS DURING PHASE II.
