Project Announcement: Confined Spaces Monitoring for Operations Safety and Efficiency – Phase IV

The US Department of Defense is partnering with industry and academia on a multiphase CTMA initiative to test, optimize, and validate a Confined Spaces Monitoring System (CSMS) for insertion into confined space working environments, primarily relating to conducting maintenance and sustainment activities.
Specific objectives will require an industry partner to:

  • Evaluate baseline iOS-based, cloud deployed, and enterprise level commercial CSMS in a maintenance environment.
  • Extend the CSMS system design specification to incorporate Gen 2 CSMS requirements.
  • Produce and demonstrate a Gen 2 CSMS architecture that extends the commercial CSMS system architecture to meet DOD facility requirements.

The industry participant will meet the above objectives by addressing four key classes of system components: sensors, data networking, situation awareness displays, and alerting for safety interventions. Multiple sensors will be used to meet operational requirements, which consist of environmental, physiological, and location data. The data will be collected and transmitted within the constraints of approved computing hardware, networking, and communication protocols.
