Division Projects and Offerings
Advanced Modular Manikin
The Advanced Modular Manikin ™ project is a collaborative effort between the Department of Defense, UW CREST and industry producers. The deliverables consist of a modular, distributed, interoperable architecture patient simulation with open standards for all the relevant data models, communication protocols, physical connectors, a reference patient and reference hardware for core resources that will be published in draft form for comments, then finalized and published. The software that is part of the core system will be made available under an open source license.
The goal is to create a standardized blueprint for developing segmented body parts that can universally join together, forming one multi-purpose manikin to fit the needs of any desired scenario.
