ROCKVILLE, Md. — Jan. 6, 2020 — Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded an U.S. Navy contract to continue reducing aviator helmet vibration.
Helmet vibrations are connected to excessive pilot fatigue and unsafe conditions such as missed radio communications and hearing loss. IAI will develop a system that reduces helmet vibrations, and will use finite element analysis (FEA) to simulate how the mitigations will reduce acoustic and shock loading experienced by pilots. The device will be designed to integrate into next generation equipment and can be installed onto existing helmets.
IAI is an industry leader for research and development in electromechanical system design. IAI will leverage its current technology portfolio and product design in complex systems analysis to enable rapid design and development of this technology.
“IAI is proud to have been selected by the Navy to explore innovative technologies to meet technology gaps in the areas of helmet vibration and pilot safety,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.
IAI is a technology innovation company specializing in providing advanced technology solutions and R&D services to federal agencies and corporations. IAI leverages agile R&D processes, a multi-disciplinary collaborative environment, and a substantial intellectual property portfolio to develop concepts into market-focused products and customer-driven solutions. IAI’s core R&D areas include: AI & Advanced Computing; Autonomy & Robotics; Healthcare Research Technologies; Modeling, Simulation & Visualization; Networks & Cyber Security; and Radar, Communications & Sensors.
