Roadmap to Evaluate the Risk of Spinal Compression Fracture (SCF) Due to Electromuscular Incapacitation (EMI)

November, 2016
Recent swine testing of a new Electromuscular Incapacitation (EMI) waveform performed at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in 2012 produced spinal compression fracture (SCF) in the test subjects and was subsequently co....
Significance of Tympanic Membrane Rupture Potentially Caused by Flashbang Grenades

May, 2016
Flashbang grenades are Non-Lethal Weapons (NLWs) that employ loud sounds intended to temporarily suppress the targeted personnel while minimizing permanent injuries.
Analysis of the Startle Response to Flashbang Grenades

June, 2018
The surprise or “startle” element associated with flashbang grenades may trigger varying degrees of psychological and physiological distress that could have implications for the design of effective flashbang grena....
Live-Site UXO Classification Demonstrations: A Retrospective Summary (Poster)

October, 2017
This poster highlights a series of increasingly challenging live-site demonstrations to explore the capability of advanced geophysical classification for remediating landing of unexploded ordnance.
UXO Burial Prediction Fidelity: A Summary

July, 2017

An Evaluation of the National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellows Program

June, 2017
The DoD established the National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellowships (NSSEFF) program, now Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship (VBFF), in 2008 to support university faculty and scientists to conduct potentially ....
Significance of Rib Fractures Potentially Caused by Blunt-Impact Non-Lethal Weapons

March, 2017
Non-lethal weapons are designed and employed to immediately and reversibly incapacitate targeted personnel or materiel, while minimizing fatalities, permanent injuries to personnel, and undesired damage to property.
A Monte Carlo Tradeoff Analysis to Guide Resource Investments in Threat Detection Systems From Forensic to Prospective Investigations

March, 2017
