Sensory Research Division
 

Welcome to the Sensory Research Division (SRD)

SRD’s mission is to conduct sensory research to protect, sustain, and extend the operational capabilities of our Army’s Warfighters. These objectives include:

  • Eye and ear injury prevention
  • Development of sensory biomarkers for the evaluation of visual, auditory, and vestibular consequences of traumatic brain injury and fitness for duty criteria development
  • Development of realistic models for the assessment of protection technologies and sensing performance with these technologies
  • Development of unique visual and auditory standards for service occupations and performance standards for optical, acoustical and communication devices
  • Establishment of a sensory performance research base to support the development and integration of Soldier technologies into military systems
  Research Areas  

Visual Sciences Branch

  • Provides a basis for the development and integration of optical and electro-optical displays in military systems
  • Evaluates physical, physiological, and functional vision associated with military occupational demands and combat, the definition of countermeasures to improve and preserve vision and visual efficiency, particularly as applied to unaided visual target detection, recognition, and identification

Acoustics Research Branch

  • Conducts research to improve the operational capabilities of Army aviation, mounted, and ground forces by predicting and reducing hazards from excessive exposure to noise
  • Improves the safety and mission capabilities of Army personnel by improving the auditory displays and communications systems utilized in military aircraft and ground vehicles
