  • BATDOK improves, tailors to deployed medical Airmen

    For more than three years, researchers with the Air Force Research Laboratory have continuously refined the Battlefield Assisted Trauma Distributed Observation Kit, or BATDOK, improving how combat medics deliver care in austere environments using an adaptable smartphone program.
  • Battlespace acoustics branch protects hearing, human performance

    Researchers from the Warfighter Interface Division, Battlespace Acoustics Branch, part of the 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, focus on protecting Airmen’s hearing by studying existing devices used during various tasks and noise environments, and develop new ways to measure the impact of HPDs on mission performance.
  • Lighter, leaner, lifesaving: AF tests wearable medical tech

    Wearable medical technology is helping the Air Force bring advanced deployed medical capabilities further forward on the battlefield. Researchers from the 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, are advancing wearable medical technology to offer new types of care in deployed environments, and improving care downrange and during medical evacuations.
  • AF tests in-flight respiratory monitoring

    To lower risks of in-flight breathing issues and protect the health and performance of aircrew, Air Force researchers rely on innovative technology to deliver advanced respiratory monitoring, without the added weight. Researchers with the 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, are working with a private company, Cobham, to develop VigilOX, an advanced sensor system designed for continuous in-flight measurement of aircrew breathing.
