Engineering consultancy Frazer-Nash is supporting the Department of Defence in its research efforts to enhance the performance and resilience of ADF personnel to operate in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) environments.
Frazer-Nash has been engaged by the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) on a project to identify innovative, human-centric technologies that can have a positive impact on the cognitive and physical performance of personnel operating in CBRN environments, and ultimately enhance the ADF’s CBRN capability.
This project supports one of Defence’s eight STaRShots which address significant military challenges critical to the security of Australia. STaRShots identify and drive innovative pathways from fundamental research and development through to prototyping and transition into capability.
“Ultimately this project will support the identification of future technologies with promise to enhance the resilience of defence personnel to operate in CBRN environments,” Frazer-Nash Consultant Harriet Slack said. “Working at the cutting edge with the DSTG team is exciting as we strive to enhance our ADF’s capacity to operate effectively in such challenging environments.”
