Research Institution

In the proposed Phase II Extension (Phase II E), we will develop and deploy a software product, Personalized CoBi-Blast and a cloud database for monitoring of repeated blast loads on Service members involved in heavy weapons training using data collected from wearable pressure sensors (blast gauges). The work in the proposed Phase II E project will focus on: • Monitoring of the repeated exposure during heavy weapon training • Accurate prediction of full body (particularly head) blast exposure from a few body-worn pressure sensor data • Head protection and body armor e.g. helmet, eye ware, earplugs in computing repeated blast energy deposition on the Service members head and neck.
