The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright Patterson AFB is the Air Force lead in human performance research and development for its air, space and cyberspace forces.
Supporting that mission is the Ohio Federal Research Network’s (OFRN) Human Performance and Health Sciences (HPHS) Center of Excellence (COE), a research collaborative that aims to build Ohio’s tech-based workforce alongside high-impact innovations.
Dr. Tim Broderick of Wright State Research Institute, and associate dean for Research Affairs at the WSU Boonshoft School of Medicine leads the HPHS COE, with support from an advisory board comprised of Ohio academic, federal and industry leaders. Academic partners include the University of Cincinnati, The Ohio State University, the University of Toledo, The Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) and Case Western Reserve University. Industry allies to the HPHS COE include The Perduco Group, Eccrine Systems and Premier Health.
HPHS research projects support AFRL in the areas of human performance, human-machine teaming (HMT), autonomy, live virtual and constructive modeling simulation and training and Aerospace Medicine education and training, says Broderick. HPHS is one of six COEs organized by the OFRN,a state-funded initiative established in 2015 to create partnerships among Ohio’s research universities, high-tech industries and key Ohio federal laboratories.
