AFRL Seeks Health Monitoring, Warfighter Dev’t Concepts

Jeff Brody

The Air Force Research Laboratory is looking for concepts to speed up human-monitoring research and development initiatives for warfighters. The laboratory is in need of prototypes to support performance enhancement, health monitoring and diagnostics systems, the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base said Thursday.

AFRL intends to utilize the request for proposals to further research and development efforts for nano-bio material-based electronic systems for commercial and Department of Defense customers. AFRL partnered with SEMI in 2018 to establish and grow the Nano-Bio Materials Consortium, an organization comprised of stakeholders in the nano-bio industry.

"Adapting medical equipment to perform in this unique aerospace environment can be challenging and we welcome innovative partnerships like these with industry and academia to tackle these challenges," said Tamara Averett-Brauer, operational and aeromedical health product line lead at AFRL.
