Triton Systems, Inc. proposes to develop a piezo-textile that can capture underwater explosion pressure wave patterns to ultimately establish and monitor for injury risk severity. We propose to use a state-of-the-art piezo-textile to which we will apply our own proprietary treatments.We will assess our textiles pressure detection performance and durability against a non-textile piezoelectric array in a simulated underwater explosion environment.We will also assess its performance with simulated human tissue.A performance specification will be developed based on testing of large non-survivable explosions and detection sensitivity for very small explosions that could result in non-obvious blunt trauma.
