U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Human Research Engineering Directorate. Researchers at the Human Research and Engineering Directorate use unique facilities to execute an innovative program of soldier-oriented research
and development and design-principled analyses to protect and extend soldiers’ visual, auditory, and cognitive performance in complex, time-critical battlefield stressor environments. During this tour, you may experience the Immersive Environment Simulator, the Hostile Environment Simulator, and the VirTra.

You may witness soldier marksmanship at the only research-class small-arms firing range in the United States or visit the Mobility-Portability Course, a standard course for measuring effects of soldier load, equipment, and clothing on mobility and on mental and physiological functions. Maryland Advance Simulation, Training, Research, and Innovation (MASTRI) Center; the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Service Systems (MIEMSS) Emergency Medical Communications Center; and the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. This tour covers three facilities: a simulation center, an EMS communications center,
and a trauma center. The MASTRI Center is a state-of-the-art medical simulation facility for minimally invasive surgery; humanpatient simulation for team training, trauma, and anesthesia; and a research lab for physical and cognitive ergonomics associated with surgery and medical imaging. The MASTRI Center tour will include a hands-on demo of medical simulators and a demonstration at a surgical posture analysis lab.

MIEMSS is the regulatory body for emergency medical services in the state of Maryland. Its stateof- the-art communications center, known as SYSCOM, houses a radio communication system for EMS services. The Shock Trauma Center serves as the Primary Adult Resource Center for trauma care in the state of Maryland.
