Kryptowire awarded $1.5 million smartphone sensor measurement contract by DARPA

Kryptowire has been awarded a $5.1 million contract by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop an advanced system for passively collecting, aggregating, and managing smartphone sensor measurements.

The system will be used to improve real-time warfighter health monitoring and predictive analytics for early disease biomarkers, as part of DARPA’s Warfighter Analytics using Smartphones for Health (WASH) program. The WASH program uses data collected from smartphone sensors to conduct passive, continuous, real-time assessment of physiological signals, to remotely monitor patient health, medication adherence, physical impairment, and early detection of the onset of disease.

In a statement, Kryptowire said the company intends to develop a context-aware solution to provide the medical research community data collected from users’ smartphones during both everyday use and during clinical trials.
