BTG Research focuses on science and technology to better protect the United States armed forces and law enforcement professionals. Active areas of work include better quantifying biomechanical mechanisms of traumatic brain injury, behind armor blunt trauma and wound ballistics, improving protective equipment and assessing risks associated with given ballistic or blast exposures. Toward these ends we developed new methods including acoustic methods in external ballistics and a series of laboratory scale shock tubes for blast experiments. We also developed and are actively applying quantitative methods in the area of internal ballistics.
To better equip the next generation of scientists and engineers to solve quantitative problems, our work in science education focuses on clearly defining the educational mission, helping students mature in analytical and mathematical skills, creating high quality quantitative projects that integrate technology with exciting topic areas such as blast, ballistics and miniature rocketry, and creating supplementary video instruction that provides some benefits of one-on-one instruction at students’ convenience.
As avid outdoor sportsmen, the scientists at BTG Research also apply data gathering and analysis skills to improve wildlife management . This work complements our educational efforts by providing motivating projects for students.
We may be available for research collaboration in the form of consulting, contracts, grant subcontracts, or grant collaboration. Feel free to contact us with questions or to discuss possible collaborative efforts.
