Abstract
The goal of this project is to design, develop, and delivery a human test surrogate for non-lethal testing, injury risk assessment, and validation of software inputs at the Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program for the Navy. An existing CFDRC surrogate will be used as a starting point to create a modular design capable of measuring exposure sources such as blast overpressure, light, RF/EM, chemical, and kinetic energy impact over a time period. In phase I, a modular design will be integrated with a wide range of sensors to be used in the experimental testing on the human surrogate. The electronics layout and sensor suite will be designed for"plug and play"use. A modular instrument-ready surrogate head will be delivered at the end of Phase 1 for feedback, feasibility, and initial evaluation by JNLWP. Phase II will consist of improving on the original design for the modular test surrogate and integrate a full torso and neck capable of housing a wide range of sensors for experiments. This test surrogate will feature the very latest in sensor technologies and modular design to allow for rapid testing of non-lethal weapons and sources. The aim is to keep costs of the test surrogate low by using a modular approach and allow for multiple test surrogates to be used during future testing.
