The Department of Defense’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center is funding research by Orchestra Macrosystems to help reduce non-combat musculoskeletal injuries among U.S. airmen.
The training management software company said Friday that it will design a data capture capability to predict instances of MSKIs during U.S. Air Force training under a Small Business Innovative Research Phase II opportunity.
Dave Maloney, founder of Orchestra, noted that digitizing personnel assessment would allow the military service to use predictive analysis for gaining insights into airmen training.
“Enhanced collection and analysis of human performance data is instrumental to enhancing the readiness and deployability of today’s warfighter,” he added.
The research comes after an Air Force review identified musculoskeletal injury as the top reason for lost duty days across the service.
In early July, Orchestra received a separate SBIR contract from the Air Force to create Tier-2 airmen fitness assessment tests.
