Physiological Monitoring and Modeling

The aim of this program is to develop technologies that promote naval warfighter resiliency and enhance performance under extreme operational demands and environments. Programs range from basic and applied research efforts to development and demonstration of prototype technologies.

Research Concentration Areas

  • Predictive algorithms for impacts of environmental stressors
  • Physiological and biological sensors
  • Lower power and miniaturized electronics and biomedical devices
  • Remote health monitoring
  • Human Performance

Research Challenges and Opportunities

  • Predictive models of environmental stressors to include heat, cold, hypo and hyperbaric conditions, contaminant exposure
  • Develop fundamental methods and compact algorithms in signal analysis and processing of physiological signals
  • Develop lean algorithms for embedded devices
  • Optical sensors for deep tissue sensing
  • Novel non-invasive physiological, chemical and biological sensors
  • Sensor and circuit miniaturization
  • Low-power physiological monitoring and secured communication for those systems.
