Human Performance and Resiliency

  • Kenzen, Inc. (Kansas City, MO) will adapt a heat illness prevention solution that uses a combination of a wearable sensor and advanced analytics to identify and alert users to changes in core body temperature and other specific factors. This information identifies heat stress so wearers can take preventative measures sooner, reducing the risk of serious illness. (Initial award June 2022)—Currently in Phase 2
  • VigiLife (Fairborn, OH) combines wearable sensors and wireless communications with artificial intelligence and analytics software to monitor health and safety. In addition to environmental sensing for dangerous gases or compounds, it can monitor factors such as body temperature, respiration, heart rate, motion levels, posture, and noise exposure. (Initial award June 2022)—Currently in Phase 2
  • Volt Athletics (Seattle, WA) will create an artificial intelligence-powered phone app that will help the DHS workforce improve its overall health and wellness, especially for those who operate in high-stress and dangerous conditions. The solution will create physical fitness and readiness training programs tailored to specific DHS user groups. (Initial award August 2022)—Currently in Phase 2
  • SlateSafety (Norcross, GA) will adapt a custom sensor that measures several physiological metrics around body temperature, sweat loss, exertion, etc. The system is currently used with applications in heavy industry, military and firefighting that align closely with DHS use cases. The system’s ease of use and scalability increases ability to transition solution into operations. (Initial award September 2022)—Currently in Phase 2
