Abstract
The Army has a defined need for an enabling technology that permits rapid prototyping of candidate combat medical devices within the OneSAF simulation environment. In response, Vecna has developed an open systems specification and interface tool that will allow OneSAF to interface with a real or simulated medical device to evaluate operational effectiveness and identify constraints for use. The proposed technology leverages the following innovations: 1. The OneSAF Instrumented Soldier, an extension of the OneSAF soldier model that incorporates functional models of cognition and physical behavior relevant to mission simulations that incorporate casualty and casualty care scenarios 2. A general open systems framework for physiological models that provides basic modeling of key physiological processes and is also flexible and extensible, allowing the incorporation of detailed open source and off-the-shelf simulations focused on particular physiological aspects 3. An interface that maps the physical impacts of OneSAF events on the physiological models, and that returns the physiological model's reactions back to OneSAF 4. An interface specification for defining relevant inputs and outputs of a real or simulated medical device, for how these interact with the physiological model, and for operational constraints and requirements of the medical device (for example, set-up time, and number of human operators required).
