Abstract
The proposed Combat Situational Awareness System (CSAS) is a comprehensive biometric and SCUBA status monitoring system capable of continuous monitoring of vital information such as heart rate, oxygen saturation, respiration, and full conditions such as battery metering, oxygen sensor status, and depth and location. Existing dive computers provide some situational awareness information to divers to ensure safety. Further, technologies do exist which transmits SCUBA and location information from a diver to the surface. However, to date, a system does not exist which provides a full compliment of biometric and SCUBA status awareness back and forth between the diver and the topside dive supervisor. Orbital"s proposed CSAS will fill this large gap in current military dive computers by providing critical real-time biometric data to both the diver and to the diving supervisor to aid in diver safety and performance. This Phase I SBIR program will focus on developing a sensor suite for monitoring, processing and transmitting important biometric and SCUBA status data. During Phase I, ORI will integrate two innovative biometric sensors platforms with commercially available dive computers to demonstrate vital signs and SCUBA status can be readily viewed and transmitted.
