Sending the data

This is an interesting device. I wonder if it also has the capability to signal that an explosion has occurred. Seems it would be a simple capability to add. While this device makes a lot of sense, it becomes yet another item attached to soldiers in the field. I'm also curious about the devices power source. Perhaps a small, light battery is sufficient.

What kind of data is being measured?

Elizabeth, can you tell us a bit more about exactly what kind of data is stored and what kind of sensors are used? Is this some kind of data that measures blast intensity or distance from the soldier, for example, or data that measures some kind of biological responses? For example, how is "risk of injury" measured?
