•2.       GENERAL


•a.       This Request for (RFI) is a Government effort to conduct Market Research to support potential future planning initiatives through data collection. This RFI is issued solely for and planning purposes. It does not constitute a solicitation (Request for Proposal or Request for Quotations) or a promise to issue a solicitation in the future. This RFI does not commit the Government to contract for any supply or service whatsoever. Furthermore, we are not at this time seeking proposals. Responders are advised that the U.S. Government will not pay for any or administrative costs incurred in response to this RFI. All costs associated with responding to this RFI will be solely at the responding party's expense.

•b.      Responses to this RFI DO NOT need to address every technical research area outlined below.



•a.       Background


The Air Force Research ********** (AFRL), 711th Human Performance Wing, Airman Systems (RH), Airman Bioengineering Division (RHB), Airman Sensing and Assessment Product Line provides USAF with advanced research and development of Airman centric sensor and assessment capabilities to sustain and enhance performance. In pursuit of this goal, RHB is responsible for maturing, integrating, and transitioning capabilities to Air Force acquisition programs. A key focus area for sensing and assessment is the development of capabilities that are reliable and robust in Air Force operational environments, such as flight in high performance aircraft.


In response to operational concerns regarding physiological events in flight, RHB is pursuing technologies capable of monitoring and alerting pilots regarding potential concerns with their physiological state in flight.


•b.       Approach

The effort will focus on the integration, validation, and demonstration of existing sensor technologies and assessment techniques, both Government-owned and commercial. This request is not intended to support development or maturation of specific sensor devices but instead integrate existing technologies and render the resulting data available and actionable. A non-exhaustive list of technologies that should be considered for integration follows.


Integration Platforms

The hardware used to accomplish integration of multiple sensor devices must be self-contained, self-powered, and small and lightweight enough to easily integrate into the cockpit. Small form factor computing, including smartphone or tablet platforms, is desirable to enable minimal additional devices that must be integrated in aircrew en...
