Secure Awarded Development Contract For Soldier-Worn Low Power, Wireless Physiological Sensor System

Secure Communication Systems Inc., a Secure Technology Company, is pleased to announce it recently received a contract from the United States Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC) to develop a low power wireless communication system that connects several soldier borne physiological sensors together in a body area network.

The goal of this project is to facilitate the removal of cables, improve soldier mobility, increase sensor system effectiveness, and to enhance system scalability. The wireless system uses commercial technology that has been adapted to meet the challenging requirements of military applications. The wireless system uses ultra wide-band (UWB) technology that is inherently difficult to intercept and detect and is also immune to certain types of intentional and unintentional jamming.

The operational concept involves creating a secure and robust sensor network on individual soldiers wherein the various physiological sensors are providing data such as heart rate, respiration rate, body temperature, blast effects, etc. that is available for real time transmission, via tactical radio, or for recording on a soldier borne data retrieval unit. The wireless system also enables an automatic download of the sensor data when soldiers return to their base of operations.

“This technology has the potential to benefit those outside the defense industry as well,” adds Robert Korb, President of Secure Communication Systems Inc. “First responders in hazardous situations will be able to better monitor their vitals wirelessly while in action as well as after action. And given the increased attention to head trauma in extreme sports, athletes in high-impact contact sports like football and hockey could be more closely monitored for concussions and other injuries, whether at a high school or professional level.”

The NSRDEC effort is a multi-phase project that advances the technology readiness level of the system from TRL-4 to TRL-6. Each phase culminates in a live demonstration of the wireless system capability.
