Developing Partnerships... Launching Dreams
The Biomedical Research Laboratory (BRL) at Kennedy Space Center is fully equipped to conduct research and field testing on a wide variety of manned and unmanned systems and equipment. It is the only lab at KSC that provides “human testing”, including physiological response testing and check out of life support equipment. The team provides support for human rescue operations on the ground, including: the design, fabrication, test and operation of emergency medical equipment and communication devices; and training of search and rescue personnel. This support includes communications and triage site electronic data exchange systems for astronaut and ground support personnel rescue at KSC. Search and rescue platforms include NASA and Department of Defense helicopters, ambulances and armored personnel carriers.
The BRL also provides highly skilled and experienced engineering and technical support such as the validation and checkout of systems used for biomedical monitoring of crews during space missions, and pre-flight and post-flight experiments conducted on flight crews.
The BRL has an established history of successful partnerships with government and private entities in research and technology development.
