COMBAT HELMET SMART-SENSOR

TRACKING TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES IN U.S. ARMY & MARINE SOLDIERS

The Challenge:

  • Ultra-small, low power, helmet-mounted shock recorder
  • Measure head impact and pressure levels in combat events, identify possible head injuries and aid in determining if a Soldier should see immediate medical attention
  • Analyze and correlate experienced head forces and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI)
  • Low power unit, able to record up to months in remote locations
  • Collect data from multiple types of sensors
  • Easy installation and maintenance
  • Secure data transmission
  • Simple software for set-up, download and data viewing

The Solution:

  • DTS awarded Wright Patterson AFRL contract to develop the Embedded Event Recorder
  • DTS awarded BAE contract to develop the next generation Embedded Event Recorder, officially called HEADS (Headborne Energy Analysis and Diagnostic Systems)
  • The HEADS unit weighs only 2 ounces and embeds in the crown of a helmet
  • 7 independent transducers (triaxial accelerometer, triaxial angular rate sensor, pressure sensor)
  • Unit operates on an internal rechargeable battery and can record for up to 12 months
  • Store in place reliability, data securely writes directly to flash memory
  • Trigger thresholds starts record mode, alerts if a soldier should seek immediate medical attention with a possible Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI)
  • 48,000 units fielded to U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps in Iraq and Afghanistan
  • DTS is a trusted complete solution provider and experts in injury biomechanics
  • U.S. Army named the DTS Helmet Sensor as one of the “Greatest Inventions of 2011”
