Zephyr™ Performance Systems help train the most elite teams in the world, the U.S. Special Forces.
Members of special forces units use Zephyr™ Performance Systems to increase the effectiveness of their training regimens and candidate selection. They know firsthand how the leading physiological and biomechanical monitoring systems help give them an edge.
NASA uses Zephyr™ Performance Systems to combat motion sickness caused by weightlessness. Already it has helped 65 percent of those undergoing training suppress motion sickness.
This is important because astronauts can’t be distracted or incapacitated. And soon missions won’t be measured in weeks or months, but in the years it takes to get to Mars and back.
ARTICLES AND RESEARCH
The U.S. military is using the Zephyr™ system to monitor trainees during field operations. By tracking estimated core body temperature, the Zephyr™ system has already helped the Air Force Research Laboratory and the 350th Training Squadron identify and treat more than 30 cases of heat stress.
Command & Control
Using heart rate variability to assess operator mental workload in a command and control simulation of multiple unmanned aerial vehicles.
The Zephyr™ system BioHarness™ device will be integrated into NASA’s Biologic Analog Science Associated with Lava Terrains (BASALT) Mars simulation to monitor and transmit crewmember health and activity information during “extravehicular activity” (EVA) sample collection tasks.
This study correlates the gravitational forces (G forces) detected by wearable accelerometers with the G forces detected by high performance aircraft.
