This opportunity seeks to develop improved pre-hospital canine combat casualty simulation training devices with an emphasis on Special Operations Forces (SOF) pre-hospital providers. The proposed projects must research and apply/or develop novel approaches for high-fidelity canine trauma training simulation devices with physiologically relevant feedback to include temperature, pulse, lifelike size and weight, realistic fur, active bleeding, anatomically accurate airways, and haptic technology. Canine training devices should respond to medical treatments with little to no operator/trainer intervention and capture and provide accurate casualty care feedback. All simulators/simulations should meet Joint Airworthiness Standards.
