U.S. Marine Corps researchers are reaching out to industry for wearable inertial measurement units (IMUs) small enough to attach to the feet, legs, backs, and chests of Marine infantrymen. Officials of the Marine Corps Systems Command at Quantico Marine Base, Va., issued a source-sought notice (M67854-16-N-0510) for small, lightweight IMUs to help with infantry mobility research. Researchers want to gather IMU data to evaluate the fatigue and performance of Marines operating in the field over a variety of terrain and carrying different kinds of warfighter equipment.
