Anthropometric Measurement Device (IMAGE) Office of Naval Research Caption Nick Sievert, a machine learning developer at Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren, uses the computerized Anthropometric Measurement Device to measure a student naval aviator to gauge what type of aircraft cockpit will best accommodate the aviator's body. The device, developed through support from the Office of Naval Research Global TechSolutions program, features enhanced optical scanning and processing of subjects--which saves time, improves standardization and is less susceptible to human error than current measurement methods.
