Abstract : This technical report documents efforts conducted to assess the feasibility of the concept of a human injury information system which provides data describing the effects of wartime hazards on individuals. It also provides general recommendations for implementing the concept. This information system will incorporate tables, graphs, and algorithms which describe the near-term effects of short-term exposure of a standard individual to various injury-causing mechanisms found in the wartime environment. These mechanisms are overpressure, penetration, acceleration, blunt impact, thermal energy, and toxic agents.
