Abstract:

The applied research program focuses on developing innovative technologies and procedures and transitioning them to field use. Frequently these products have application not only for Air Force use, but also for use by the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and civilian sectors. Some examples of recent in-house and contract-developed technologies include the Attenuating Custom Communication Earpiece System ACCES, high performance active noise reduction earplugs, helmets specifically designed to reduce bone conducted noise, tactical hearing protection earplugs or earmuffs with active electronics to provide ambient listening, communication, and localization capabilities while protecting from continuous and impulsive noisefrequently also providing a radio communication interface, low-cost head orientation system, for dismounted airmen and soldiers, and spatial auditory symbology.
