Warfighters are travelers and thus suffer from travelers’ ailments including disrupted sleep cycles and limited access to safe food and water. Warfighters who have not slept well have lower alertness, weaker athletic performance, and greater disorientation. Current approaches to restoring wakefulness often lean on chemical methods that disrupt downstream sleep patterns and lead to exhaustion.

Warfighters are travelers, and the bodily inconveniences suffered by travelers, such as jet lag and traveler's diarrhea, can seriously degrade operational readiness and even determine mission success or failure. To maximize warfighter performance, the ADvanced Acclimation and Protection Tool for Environmental Readiness (ADAPTER) program will develop systems that provide warfighters greater control over their own physiology.

Our deployed service members are exposed to adversary activity and numerous naturally occurring or engineered threats including chemicals, viruses, and bacteria. To protect them, BTO is developing technologies that can rapidly detect and characterize these threats. In addition, BTO is developing novel biological approaches to sense and report adversary activities on land and at sea.
