WHY CHOOSE IBA?

Our biomedical engineers conduct applied research in the conceptual design and integration of medical systems with emerging aircraft and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and other robotic and autonomous devices. We partner with our clients to identify technology enablers from related domains that have the potential to solve problems in the military medical domain, and we develop research plans based on findings. Our unique ability to solve complex problems is demonstrated through the research and application of relevant theories, methods, and techniques.

OUR APPROACH

Through continuous collaboration with multidisciplinary aeromedical teams and other agencies, we are developing solutions to minimize patient transport hazards on unmanned aircraft. We are knowledgeable in design, integration, and implementation of medical devices and communications systems on aircraft systems, system safety engineering for aeromedical evacuation, and manned-unmanned systems teaming and human factors engineering.

We partner with DoD and industry to provide subject matter expertise in head injury protection, seating restraint systems, crash survivability, life support equipment, human tolerance to acceleration and vibration, and in-flight emergency escape system design. We work with agencies to develop innovative solutions to minimize hazards in the Army aviation environment, and serve as subject matter experts for product integration.

WHAT WE OFFER

We have extensive experience supporting highly complex and value-driven research proposals to address current and future gaps for battlefield systems that will benefit by incorporating biomedical engineering, UMS, robotics, and autonomous devices. Examples include emergency medical resupply and automated patient care using unmanned aerial platforms that integrate predictive intelligent combat casualty care capabilities. We provide programmatic and technical oversight and execution management assistance to CORs. This includes reviewing reports, plans, and prototypes.

BENEFITS

Biotechnology research in the areas of informatics, computer science, and physiology monitoring remain at the forefront of our medical capability development. Our specific subject matter experts continue to provide cutting-edge research focused on improving medical care for the military health system through the use of multiple tools and techniques for use by trained medical providers in traditional and nontraditional healthcare settings.
