IAI Awarded U.S. Navy Contract to Develop a Technology to Minimize Chronic Neck Pain in Military Aircrew and Vehicle Occupants

ROCKVILLE, Md.—April 27, 2020Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Navy to minimize chronic neck pain in military aircrew and vehicle occupants in both fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft.

In this contract, IAI will investigate factors associated with chronic neck pain incurred during ejection and seat crashes with short duration and high onset acceleration protection. Using computational models and parametric simulations, IAI will determine potential contributors to acute and chronic operator neck pain and the specific pain mechanisms involved. IAI will then recommend improved operational guidelines for aircrews and prototype solutions.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by the U.S. Navy to support its research related to simulations and flight safety,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI uses data fusion, sophisticated analysis techniques, and visualizations to help users understand complex environments and systems. IAI’s immersive interfaces help users better understand available information to improve situational awareness and make more informed decisions. IAI’s researchers can model and predict the behavior of a wide range of systems including transportation networks, aeronautical components, radio networks, and radar systems.
