The Annual Progress Report, Fiscal year 1984, summarizes in two volumes the research performed by the US Army Medical Bioengineering Research and Development Laboratory in projects authorized by The Surgeon General, the US Army, and the Commander, US Army Medical Research and Development Command, and supported by RDTE funds from the US Army Medical Research and Development Command. USAMBRDLs overall mission focuses on the protection of soldiers in combat and training scenarios, employees in Army-unique industrial exposure settings, and the environment. Concern for the soldier stems from the potential operational employment of US Army troops in any area of the world to meet a wide spectrum of contingencies. To be prepared for deployment, personnel must undergo rigorous and realistic training. Therefore, the soldier will be exposed to not only the Army-unique hazards experienced in combat, but also those occupational hazards of the training environment. The goal is to develop data through research which will provide relief for the soldier from the hazards inherent in military operations, worldwide. In addition, the USAMBRDL fulfills The Surgeon Generals research responsibilities in the protection of industrial workers and the surrounding community at Army-controlled, industry-operated munition plants. The Environmental Quality program provides that data base needed to enable the Army to establish standards for compliance with Executive Orders and the Clean Air and Water Acts as well as to develop pollution abatement procedures for Army munition plants and military installations.
