A Cincinnati startup focused on sweat technology has a new contract with the U.S. Air Force.
Eccrine Systems has been awarded a $750,000 SBIR Phase II contract focused on real-time measurement of specific biomarkers in human sweat as an index of cognitive performance. The project will help enable commercial development of Eccrine’s technology while continuing research for the Air Force.
“We are very pleased to receive this award,” said George Raihala, defense and security programs director at Eccrine Systems. “It acknowledges the successful results we attained during the SBIR Phase I project and will accelerate development and commercialization of non-invasive wearable devices that will monitor cognitive status while warfighters are operating under thermally stressful conditions.”
