Vital sign, such as respiration rate and heart rate, provide important indications of the physiological and mental conditions of an Airman. Being able to understand the physiological and mental conditions of an operator is therefore of vital importance to improving the efficiency and efficacy of future Air Force operations. Current state-of-the-practice in continuous cardiopulmonary vital sign monitoring involves wearable devices/instrumentations that require physical contact to the human body, exerting additional physical constraints that may undermine operations. In contrast, contact-free monitoring of vital sign is a user-friendly approach compared to contact methods. The Cardiac Motion LLC and University of California Davis team’s solution is a hybrid technology platform, a total solution that can be used for non-intrusive remote vital sign sensing. By building the system on an integrated prototype, the CM/UCD approach will deliver accurate and robust monitoring over a distance of several meters. The system will be suitable for use in command and control and adaptive training scenarios. The system will also be suitable in field operations for monitoring the physiological and mental conditions of weapon operators.
