Hothead Technologies Military Application

  1. 2. The Value Proposition <ul><li>The HOT system will provide a “never-before,” revolutionary means of monitoring an soldier’s temperature, creating the optimal safety alert system for medics and certified military trainers. </li></ul>
  2. 3. Wireless RF Technology <ul><li>One of the central components within the HOT system is </li></ul><ul><li>the wireless RF (Radio Frequency) tag that sends data to a medic or PDA. </li></ul><ul><li>Intelligent Long Range (ILR) active RFID tag </li></ul><ul><li>300 yard read/write radius </li></ul><ul><li>Temperature logging </li></ul><ul><li>1,000-tag simultaneous identification </li></ul><ul><li>Battery life – one year plus </li></ul><ul><li>Impact resistant & Industrial Housing </li></ul><ul><li>Water proof </li></ul>
  3. 4. Sensor Technology <ul><li>Sensor hardware is also a primary component and directly measures forehead temperature and estimates core temperature. </li></ul><ul><li>Custom Design </li></ul><ul><li>Measures temp from temporal artery </li></ul><ul><li>Captures multiple readings </li></ul><ul><li>Impact Resistant </li></ul><ul><li>Non-Invasive, “Pinpoint” size </li></ul><ul><li>Only weighs 14 grams </li></ul>
  4. 5. PDA Hardware & Software Solution <ul><li>The handheld PDA is the medic’s tool which supports their ability to monitor the temperature trends of every soldier. It’s equipped with proprietary software specifically for heat monitoring. </li></ul><ul><li>Customizable database </li></ul><ul><li>Up to 1,000 helmets accessible </li></ul><ul><li>Built-in audible alert </li></ul><ul><li>Historical data </li></ul>
  5. 6. The Components <ul><li>Heat Sensing </li></ul><ul><li>The highly-sensitive sensor measures forehead skin temperature from </li></ul><ul><li>the temporal artery. Preliminary data indicates that there is a correlation between forehead temperature and core body temperature as measured with our device. Kennesaw State University is in the process of further validating this data. </li></ul><ul><li>Remote reporting </li></ul><ul><li>The system is equipped with a custom RF tag or assembly that </li></ul><ul><li>gathers heat data and transmits it to a handheld PDA. The data can be </li></ul><ul><li>downloaded to a user’s computer and reports are generated that detail dates, times, and temperature readings for each individual soldier. </li></ul>
  6. 7. The Components (cont.) <ul><li>Software Application </li></ul><ul><li>Proprietary software shows soldier information such as </li></ul><ul><li>temperature, name, rank, and any known medical conditions. </li></ul><ul><li>Customized Database </li></ul><ul><li>Allows each unit to create additional fields of data </li></ul><ul><li>regarding the soldier (ex. weight, height, physical condition, </li></ul><ul><li>etc.). </li></ul>
  7. 8. The Software Application <ul><li>Screens 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Standby Mode – System remains in standby mode until </li></ul><ul><li>user acknowledges system to conduct a system check. </li></ul>
  8. 9. The Software Application <ul><li>Screen 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Status Mode – User can view multiple players and </li></ul><ul><li>monitor their ongoing body temperatures in real-time. </li></ul>
  9. 10. The Software Application <ul><li>Screen 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Soldier Personal Mode – User can access soldier data such as their name, unit, last temperature, tag number, and Social Security number. </li></ul>
  10. 11. The Software Application <ul><li>Screens 4 </li></ul><ul><li>Medical Info and Notes Mode– User can access soldier’s medical information and Notes to engage with medics or commanders in case of an emergency. </li></ul>
  11. 12. The Software Application <ul><li>Screen 5 </li></ul><ul><li>Help Mode – Hothead Assist ™ provides a quick </li></ul><ul><li>reference guide to medics when </li></ul><ul><li>facing the challenge of an overheated soldier. </li></ul><ul><li>User Guide </li></ul><ul><li>Navigation </li></ul><ul><li>Customizing Database </li></ul><ul><li>QuikLinks to Symptoms </li></ul><ul><li>QuikLinks to Treatments </li></ul>
  12. 13. Beneficiary and End User <ul><li>The beneficiary and end user of the HOT System: </li></ul>Soldiers: Feel safer that someone is personally monitoring their body’s temperature Medics: Will know the heat risk level of their soldiers before it reaches above-normal levels
