Develops practical solutions for predicting and countering environmental threats to Warfighter health and performance through research on biophysical assessments of clothing and individual equipment, biomedical modeling, and wearable physiological sensors.
Conducts nutrition research that provides the biomedical science basis for developing new rations, menus, policies and programs to enable Warfighter readiness, optimal performance and lethality.
Conducts research to characterize, improve, and optimize Warfighter performance of military tasks and missions to prevent or mitigate performance decrements due to military-relevant threats, such as musculoskeletal injuries, physical overload, occupational operational stressors, and exposures. MPD research provides solutions that increase Warfighter readiness and deployability.
Conducts research to sustain and enhance Warfighter performance and minimize medical risk associated with military operations at environmental extremes, including hot, cold, high-terrestrial altitude and multifactorial environments. TMMD research supports military materiel developers of clothing, equipment and food.
