Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $54,012.00
 

Abstract:

THE PURPOSE OF THE EFFORT PROPOSED HEREIN IS TO DEFINE THE PROCEDURES TO ESTABLISH AN ANTHROPOMETRIC DATABASE WHICH CAN BE ADDED TO ON A CONTINUOUS BASIS, AND WHICH WILL PROVIDE THE INFORMATION NEEDED BY VARIOUS USERS IN ORDER TO GUARANTEE THE FIT OF GARB WORN BY MILITARY PERSONNEL. TO MEET THAT END, SPECIFIC FIT PROBLEMS WILL BE STUDIED IN ORDER TO DETERMINE THEIR CAUSE. BY EXPERIENCED AND SPECIALIZED OBSERVATION, THE PROBLEMS WILL BE IDENTIFIED AS DESIGN, ISSUE OR USE RELATED, AND RECOMMENDATIONS WILL BE MADE AND TESTED. THOSE RECOMMENDATIONS WHICH DEMONSTRATE A STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT LINK BETWEEN GARB FIT AND SPECIFIC ANTHROPOMETRIC DIMENSIONS WILL BE FACTORED INTO THE DATABASE. A SYSTEMS TRADE OFF STUDY WILL BE CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF AUTOMATING THE MEASURING PROCESS. THE AUTOMATED PROCESS WOULD PROVIDE THE CAPABILITY TO STORE IMAGES, AS WELL AS SPECIFIC MEASUREMENTS. BY APPLYING DIFFERENT PROCESSING ALGORITHMSNEW INFORMATION CAN BE EXTRACTED FROM THE IMAGES TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE MANY USERS INVOLVED IN THE LIFE CYCLE OF MILITARY GARB.
