ARA is the key partner that medical and military communities look to for leading, cost-efficient health and safety solutions. Our innovation and in-depth knowledge of physical, chemical, physiological, and biological processes make us leaders in solving complex health problems including personal health protection; traumatic brain injuries; inhalation injuries; and chemical, biological, and radiological effects.

As a leader in modeling and simulation, ARA provides superlative medical modeling to research the effects of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) environments on the human body.

In the lab and in the field, our biomechanical experts research, analyze, and design systems to prevent and mitigate injuries caused by exposure to blast, ballistic, blunt, and collision impact threats.

ARA uses our advanced knowledge of human physiology and mechanical properties evaluation to test and develop leading edge protective equipment.

Some of our injury biomechanics and protective design solutions include:

  • Human physiology modeling and simulation
  • Assessment and prediction of human injury
  • Advanced test facilities and equipment
  • Characterizing the physiological outcomes of biological and mechanical threats
  • Adverse event forensic investigation
  • Medical device evaluation
  • Patient safety studies
  • Surgeon fatigue studies
  • Surgical suite visual display development
  • Spread of contagious disease modeling
  • Medical resource requirements
  • CBRN-related health surveillance
  • Nanotoxicology analysis
  • Bioagent threat analysis
  • Simulation-based design and testing of vehicle and personal protective equipment
  • Thermal protection technology and engineering
