A Breakdown of FY19 Initatives in Biometrics & Identity Management


The Warfighter Analytics using Smartphones for Health (WASH) program is developing analytic
techniques for continuous and real-time assessment of warfighter physiological health and
cognitive state based on the multiple sensor data streams generated by modern smartphones. In
FY19, WASH plans to develop secure, privacy-preserving, cloud-based data ingest and storage
technologies for collecting, organizing, and associating user smartphone, physiological health, and
behavioral data; Develop a mobile application to capture user smartphone data passively and
securely, and to compute digital biomarkers; and perform assessments of sensitivity and
specificity of smartphone-based digital biomarkers for detection and diagnosis of physiological
disease and assessment of cognitive state.
