We participated in the US Army NSRDEC Roundtable Discussion on Human Augmentation and Army Vision 2025. This invitation-only event was a gathering to brainstorm a number of topics related to Human Augmentation capability to assist the Army in achieving Vision 2025. The event goals included: (i) Given the state of the market, and proximity to commercialization, identify 3-5 engineering priorities, (ii) Identify science and technology gaps, (iii) Identify technology transition gaps to effectively transitioning technologies to the field within the next 3-8 years, (iv) Identify consumer perception of the utility of the human augmentation capability in achieving vision 2025 goals, (v) Foster dialogue between government, industry and academia – researchers, stakeholders, users, developers, academics.
NERVE Center at UMass Lowell did a great job with the organization. Event website.
