New Hypoxia Sensor Aims to Make Military Trainer Aircraft Safer
31 January 2019
For this study, SPYDR was installed as a functional ear-cup replacement in flight helmets worn by rated US Navy aircrew. Subjects were exposed to reduced atmospheric pressure using a hypobaric chamber to simulated altitudes of 25,000 feet and high G-forces in a human-rated centrifuge up to 9 G acceleration.
Investigation of Photoplethysmography Behind the Ear for Pulse Oximetry in Hypoxic Conditions with a Novel Device (SPYDR)
SPYDR utilizes a reflectance PPG sensor applied behind the ear, between the pinna and the hairline, on the mastoid process, above the sternocleidomastoid muscle, near the posterior auricular artery in a self-contained ear cup system.
Bone Conduction as a Viable Alternative to Current Communications Systems in Fighter Cockpits
Effective voice communication is essential when operating aircraft. Because of the loud operating environment in fighter cockpits, it has been a challenge to provide effective communication while simultaneously protecting the hearing sense. The objective of this study was to determine the feasibility of using bone conducting transducers (BCT) in place of legacy communications systems in fighter cockpits.
