Human Injury Detection & Prevention

Prevention of injury to military service members is a top priority of military leaders regarding all perspectives: training, operational effectiveness, post-service life quality, and medical care. Never before in our country’s history has there been such a concerted effort to understand and prevent injury in a military environment.

ATI offers one of the most broad-based research and development centers for addressing the issues associated with human injury. Our 50+ staff of experts in the sciences, engineering, biomechanics, fluid dynamics, and neurosciences are able to tackle the most complex human interaction in a hostile environment and produce practical results, based on the highest quality medical research.
Our specialties include:

  • Models of the body’s response and injury risk from exposure to blasts, blunt trauma, toxic gases, environmental extremes, and other external threats
  • Models of the interaction of protective gear with the body, including gas masks, helmets, body armor and clothing
  • Models of the physiological response of the body to threats, environment, burden, and tasks, including endurance limits
  • Extensive laboratory test facilities for recreating a wide range of blast and blunt trauma exposures for evaluating the response and effectiveness of protective gear and materials
  • Comprehensive field test capability to conduct blast test exposures under realistic conditions, yet with state-of-the art instrumentation
  • Capability to design, develop, deploy, and evaluate “smart sensors” that couple real-time measurement with state-of-the-art assessment tools for injury and physiological stress
