Blast Sensing Solutions
Advanced Materials and Devices, Inc. (AMAD) brings its innovative wearable three-dimensional (3-D) blast sensors to the warfighter and the public. Two lines of sensors with 3-D blast capturing capabilities have been developed: the OmniBlast Air and OmniBlast Water.
The OmniBlast Air and OmniBlast Water provide crucial blast exposure data for in-air and underwater blasts. The data enables the correlation of repeated blast exposure to injuries, as well as to structural damage.
Why Choose OmniBlast?
AMAD’s sensors have a unique sensing approach to capture blast waves regardless of orientation. The OmniBlast sensors will capture blast exposure data when the directionality of the blast source is unknown.

About Blast Exposure
420,000 cases of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) on Service Members were reported between 2000 and 2020. It is estimated that a majority of TBIs are a result of blast exposure, with 70% of 43,852 participants screened for a TBI having a blast-related injury. There is a need for a wearable blast sensor and medical database to correlate the blast exposure amplitude to the severity of the injury.
