The Life Sciences & Human Performance portfolio covers a broad range of human performance technology areas associated with sensing, monitoring, modeling, augmenting, and training the human. Advancing human performance requires fundamental basic research in new technologies aimed at optimizing and protecting the men and women that operate on the ground, in the air, and in space. This portfolio focuses on human-centric sensing and sensor systems including research aimed to: 1) better understand and interrogate the fundamental physiological and biochemical signatures of performance and health; 2) investigate novel human sensing materials or technologies; 3) test new methods for integrating or merging complex multisensory data streams to extract meaningful measures of performance; and 4) better understand/model the biological effects (physiology and toxicology) of military-relevant stressors (lasers, radiofrequency radiation, microwave radiation, etc.). Further information about the goals, aims, and activities for this portfolio can be found by contacting the EOARD Program Officer, Mr. Lee Poeppelman, at email@example.com.

About EOARDEstablished in 1952, the mission of the European Office of Aerospace Research & Development (office symbol: AFRL/AFOSR/IOE) is to discover, shape, and champion fundamental research of profound scientific impact and Air Force relevance. Located in London, our area of engagement includes Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and former Soviet states. EOARD provides direct financial support (and support on behalf of other AF and DoD funding agencies) for innovative international science, primarily through research grants. In addition, we support technical exchanges and visiting scientists to foster collaborations between leading researchers and the Air Force research community.
