The Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory (NAMRL) conducts basic and applied research and development in the biomedical and allied sciences to better understand and mitigate challenges and threats aerospace operational environments pose to service member health, safety, readiness, and performance. Our lab is equipped with capabilities in acceleration and sensory sciences, biomedical sciences, environmental physiology, and engineering and technical services, all of which are supported by a unique collection of state-of-the art science research devices. Key areas of investigation include pilot spatial disorientation, situational awareness, motion sickness, vestibular function, unusual acceleration environments, effects of altitude, aircrew physiology, sustained operations and fatigue, personnel selection, back and neck pain and injury in aircrew, en route patient care, and visual and auditory sciences. Our research portfolio enables NAMRU-Dayton to transition validated knowledge and technologies to the fleet, thereby mitigating and preventing leading factors associated with aeromedical mishaps, and protecting and enhancing the health, readiness, and performance of aircrew and other service members.
