Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


IV.Q.10. Whole-Body Blast Bioeffects. By FY95, develop an injury model to serve as protective criteria for blast overpressure hazards. By FY96, expand the injury model to include gastrointestinal tract and female reproductive tract. By FY97, integrate hearing protection criteria to the health risk model.

Supports: Model to predict injury and establish safe operator exposure limits to blast effects from Army weapons systems; Health Hazards Assessment program (AR 40-10), Armaments Research, Development and Engineering Center; Army Modernization Plan, Medical Annex O—Project, Sustain, and Protect the Force—prevent injury and degradation of soldier performance from blast overpressure.
