Ergonomics of Bombs at Sea

The Defense Department’s “Armed with Science” blog reports that “in an effort to stem work-related injuries and speed the assembly of munitions aboard aircraft carriers, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) spearheaded the development of a more efficient and ergonomic way to build bombs at sea.”

“The ONR-sponsored improvements will allow sailors to move around more freely and assemble multiple bombs simultaneously on smaller, individual stands.”

“’The main objective here is to improve the quality of life for sailors,’ said Tom Gallagher, who manages the ONR TechSolutions program that oversaw the improvements.”
