Research Institution
Modern battleground includes heavily industrialized areas with heavy concentrations of chemical substances that may potentially be detrimental to the health of military personnel. Currently, only rough evaluations of the health risks can be made and acomputerized, near real-time system for risk assessment is needed for advanced and contingency planning of the military operations. The system should have the ability to produce an expert assessment of the health risks to the military personnel based onsound toxicological data and models, and up-to-date operational and environmental information. IAC proposes to develop the Advanced Force Protection Tools (AFPROT) system that uses modular, distributed design based on Web services technology, withstandardized (XML-based) data interfaces. The system will integrate toxicological data and models with chemical hazard intelligence, and operational data. Additionally, it will provide the required flexibility in the system configuration, means forintegration of legacy software and models, and means for integration with control and command systems employed by the military. In Phase I, we will provide an initial demonstration of the AFPROT platform, which will include prototypes of essentialcomputational modules and integration with existing databases of toxicological data.
