Abstract
A BLAST OVERPRESSURE DOSIMETER CONCEPT WILL BE STUDIED TO ASCERTAIN ITS FEASIBILITY FOR GENERAL USE AS AN INDIVIDUAL PROTECTIVE DEVICE. FEASIBILITY TESTING WILL BE PERFORMED IN THE CONTRACTOR'S FACILITY, USING A SHOTGUN TO GENERATE THE BLAST WAVES. THE BLAST OVERPRESSURE FIELD WILL BE MAPPED WITH AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTATION. RESULTS OF THE STUDY WILL BE USED TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF THE 10 TO 150 PSI INDIVIDUAL DOSIMETER. AN OPTIONAL ADDITION TO THE PROGRAM INCLUDES A FEASIBILITY STUDY OF A RELATED TECHNIQUE FOR MEASURING BLAST IMPULSE. INCLUSION OF THIS FEATURE WOULD ENHANCE THE VALUE OF THE OVERPRESSURE DOSIMETER.
