BAE to Provide Additional Army Battlefield HEADS Sensors; Don Dutton Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBAE Systems announced Monday was awarded a $16.9 million contract modification to supply the Army with additional helmet sensors for identifying combat-related head injuries.

Don Dutton, BAE Systems protection vice president and general manager, said the data collected by Headborne Energy Analysis and Diagnostic Systems Generation II helmet sensors during traumatic events will be used to develop improved protective equipment and support medical treatment to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan who are prone to traumatic brain injuries.

The system will assist army and medical practitioners in detecting and diagnosing combat-related traumatic brain injuries through automatic and constant collection of data, including impact duration, blast pressures and the exact times of single or multiple blast events.

HEADS II is an upgraded version of the HEADS Generation I sensor and features a wireless technology for downloading a summary of recorded events, extended battery life, expanded pressure measurement and angular rate data.

BAE will deliver the sensors by January 2013.

According to the release the Army is currently using around 20,000 of the sensors in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The modification follows an original five-year contract originally awarded in June 2010 which had a ceiling value of around $34 million.
