Research Institution

Applied Physical Sciences Corp. (APS) in collaboration with Ocean Technology Systems (OTS) will develop a diver physiological monitoring (DPM) system with integrated microdisplay that easily retrofits with existing full face masks (FFM) and that leverages commercial-off-the-shelf biometric sensors. The capability to quantitatively evaluate and assess a remote diver"s status will significantly improve situational awareness and ensure safe and effective operations. In that regard, the DPM system will acoustically transmit diver heart rate, respiratory rate, and body temperature to a surface station in real-time whereby a training supervisor can keep track of individual divers during training exercises. The DPM system will be integrated with a digital head mounted display and a diver communication system. The focus of the Phase I effort is to evaluate and integrate physiological sensors into an existing Scuba FFM that is reliable, accurate, and unobtrusive to the diver. Commercialization within SOCOM, the US Navy, and the United States Coast Guard will be pursued.
