DTS In-Ear Exposure Sensors (IEES) Measure Blunt Impact & Blast Overpressure

As part of an SBIR contract through the Defense Health Agency, DTS is developing in-ear exposure sensors to help protect military personnel. DTS is proud to share the abstract we originally planned to present in-person at the 2021 Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS), which was unfortunately canceled this year due to the pandemic.

Detection and measurement of potential injury due to blast overpressure and blunt impact have been priorities of the US military for many years. The DTS groundbreaking
6DOF blast dosimeter is much smaller and more accurate than any other system. Testing has proven that the prototype is able to both recognize and capture blast even at <1psi, a range not often captured by other devices. This dosimeter device is powered by a hearing aid battery and weighs <3g and can be integrated with other protective equipment like helmets, footwear and tactical headsets while remaining unobtrusive to the wearer.

MHSRS is the Department of Defense’s premier scientific meeting that focuses specifically on the unique medical needs of the Warfighter. The annual educational symposium brings together healthcare professionals, researchers, and DoD leaders. The original DTS Abstract was titled Standardization of Blast and Unconventional Exposure Novel Injuries – Developmental Efforts of In-Ear Exposure Sensors.

For a second consecutive year Diversified Technical Systems (DTS), headquartered in Seal Beach, California, was named as one of the Best Places to Work in Orange County. The awards program was created over a decade ago and is a project of the Orange County Business Journal and Best Companies Group.

“Being recognized as one of Orange County’s Best Places to Work highlights the importance of each DTS employee. A customer-first attitude and creative collaboration has allowed us to develop innovative test and measurement solutions for our customers worldwide and have good time in the process,” said Rollin White, president of DTS.

DTS was named 11th in the medium-sized company category. The awards program works to identify and honor the best places of employment in Orange County, California, benefiting the county’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The two-part application process includes evaluating each employer’s workplace policies, practices and demographics, which is worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part is an extensive employee survey which measures the employee experience, and is worth 75% of the score.

This is the second year DTS applied to the awards program and is honored to be recognized again. Over the last 30 plus years DTS employees have helped develop a culture of teamwork, personal growth, and a positive environment with a family spirit. “Dedication to our customers, and to each other, is what makes DTS special,” added White.

About DTS: Diversified Technical Systems specializes in manufacturing miniature, rugged data acquisition systems and sensors for product and safety testing in extreme environments. DTS data recorders and sensors are used for testing in a variety of industries including automotive, aerospace, injury biomechanics, sports, military and defense. Founded in 1990 and headquartered in Seal Beach, California, DTS also has technical centers around the globe and is part of Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG).

U.S. Army Deliveries & First-Ever Test with 12 WIAMan

The latest shipment of five additional WIAMan Blast Test Manikins was delivered to the U.S. Army in December. Just prior to that shipment marked the first time that twelve WIAMan were gathered and operated together as a full-capacity test system. The new WIAMan, plus 2 development and 5 production manikins, were all gathered in DTS’s ATD Lab located in Seal Beach, CA for system validation testing and some ‘family’ photos.

“This was our first chance to test the External Distributor at full capacity. There literally have never been 12 WIAMan in existence, let alone all in one place,” said Tamer Abubakr, ATD Systems Manager at DTS. The test involved connecting all 12 WIAMan to a single Distributor, which manages test communication commands. As anticipated, the test was a success.

DTS’s involvement with the WIAMan project includes building the actual ATD (anthropomorphic test device), as well as the SLICE6 data acquisition system embedded inside and ancillary equipment like the External Distributor. Each WIAMan supports up to 156 sensor (data) channels. “A single exit cable from each ATD gets plugged into the External Distributor to manage communication, status, trigger, IEEE 1588 synchronization, and backup power if needed,” explained Abubakr.

U.S. Army WIAMan Blast Manikins were gathered at the DTS ATD Lab in California for a ‘family’ photo and the first opportunity to test some of the support equipment at full capacity with 12 WIAMan. 

Tamer then went on to explain in general terms how a blast test is set-up. First the miniature data recorders and sensors are embedded inside each WIAMan. The manikins are then positioned in the test vehicle and an exit cable from each ATD is run to the External Distributor. The Distributor sends commands to and from each ATD, and it’s secured in a blast bunker many meters away from the actual blast site. While one External Distributor can ‘talk’ to up to 12 WIAMan at a time, the official Command Center is miles away and manages the complete test set-up and trigger which is transmitted via fiber optic cables to the Distributor and then to each WIAMan.

DTS is prepared to deliver additional WIAMan to the U.S. Army as part of the contract, which includes up to 40 WIAMan in total. An official 700-page WIAMan accreditation report is currently under review by the U.S. Army, which will make WIAMan the first ever accredited ATD for use in under body blast testing.

DTS has been part of the WIAMan development team from the initial concept phase, including being chosen as the prime contractor to the U.S. Army. The Warrior Injury Assessment Manikin represents one of the most advanced collaborations of injury biomechanics research, engineering, manufacturing and testing. “WIAMan is the most hi-tech, biofidelic soldier surrogate in existence. It’s all about the data and each underbody blast (UBB) test provides more data to help keep our warfighters safer,” added Abubakr.

All 12 WIAMan were connected to the DTS External Distributor which manages communication, status, trigger and IEEE 1588 synchronization for the underbody blast testing. This marks the first time that a dozen WIAMan existed and could be gathered in one place.
