Abstract:

ATK Mission Research was sponsored by DARPAs Virtual Soldier program to analytically simulate residual wound tracts and tissue dynamics associated with a survivable wound from an explosively driven fragment penetrating the left ventricular wall of the human heart. The resulting ATK Mission Research wound description was used in the DARPAUniversity of Michigan Virtual Soldier program as initial conditions for describing blood loss and occurrence of hemorrhagic shock. The DARPAATK Mission Research Statement of Work SOW is included as Appendix A.
