Human Health and Performance Systems
The Human Health and Performance Systems Group develops human-centered technologies that measure, model, and modify both the physical and cognitive components of human health and performance. We focus our efforts on objective solutions in the technical areas of health and resilience monitoring, trauma care, and performance enhancement. Our core competencies include system-level modeling and gap analysis, advanced sensing, machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms, biologically based modeling, technology prototyping, system integration, and human subject testing in laboratory and field environments. Through our technology development, we strive to increase the physical and cognitive performance and psychological resilience of military and civilian end users in their unique operational environments. This highly interdisciplinary group draws on skills from biology, physiology, cognitive science, neuroscience, psychology, biosignal processing, engineering, machine learning and artificial intelligence, computer science, physics, and medical research areas. Primary government sponsors and partners are in the Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security, NASA, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Science Foundation.
