Warfighter Protection   

We protect what we value from all types of threats – chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive. Integrating technical disciplines, advanced robotics and sensor development, with proven program management, MRIGlobal’s experts address challenges in threat detection, monitoring, forensics, and prevention.

Our expertise engages microbiologists and chemists, engineers and computer analysts, and dozens of other technical capabilities, to meet the challenges of defending global risks and threats.


 

Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance

The pursuit and advancement of knowledge – it’s the heart and soul of our work. We develop the new intelligence that can change the world.

We start with facts and data. It might be from tens of thousands of samples of air, water, or soil, or it might be the painstaking reconstruction of details in a forensic study. Using detailed analytics, next-generation sensing devices, high-performance computing, and integrating disparate technologies, we create solutions that lead to better understanding of today’s world.

Take the Highway

HCF-43.jpgMRIGlobal’s Transportation Research Center plays a critical role in ensuring safe travel on and off of highways: Their work has a direct impact on the safety of all who travel on the nation’s highway system.

The Transportation Research Center recently won a $400K contract from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program to develop improved guidelines for selecting ramp design speeds associated with a full range of interchange forms, ramp types, and environments (urban versus rural).

“While general ramp design considerations are documented by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the design guidance needs to meet driver expectations and behaviors over a range of traffic conditions and the functional classification of the two intersecting roads,” said Darren Torbic, Principal Traffic Engineer. “That makes this work critical to anybody who drives on a highway.”

The research will be conducted over a two-year period in two phases. Phase I involves reviewing relevant practices, performance data, and other information associated with the selection of ramp design speeds, and develop recommendations for improvement. Phase II involves carrying out a work plan to develop guidelines for selecting appropriate ramp design speeds and to recommend revisions to the existing AASHTO guidelines.

MRIGlobal Concludes Five-Year Mannequin Robot and High-Containment Chamber Project

IPEMS-DSCF6423.png 

Individual Protective Ensemble Mannequin System (IPEMS) will Test Protective Clothing Under a Range of Conditions for The U.S. Department of Defense. The program, called the Individual Protection Ensemble Mannequin System (IPEMS), was awarded in November 2008 to MRIGlobal, which assembled a team of experts from across the country.

“This program is designed to provide data on the effectiveness of protective equipment for military personnel when exposed to highly dangerous chemicals,” said a representative of the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense. “The mannequin mimics human movements and physical responses, allowing for safe testing of full Individual Protective Ensembles (IPE) with chemical warfare agents.”
