HERNDON, Va., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Cascades Technologies, Inc. (CTi), a federal government professional consulting firm, announced that it was chosen to provide a variety of web-based services in support of DoD's Blast Injury Research Program. Working closely with prime contractor Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAI) and the Blast Injury Research Program Coordinating Office (PCO) at the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC), CTi will support Phase 3 of the project after having successfully supported the first two phases of the program.
Established in July 2006 by DoD Directive 6025.21E (Medical Research for Prevention, Mitigation, and Treatment of Blast Injuries), the purpose of the program is to coordinate and manage relevant DoD research efforts and programs for the prevention, mitigation, and treatment of blast injuries. Leveraging research and expertise from both within and outside the DoD, the Blast Injury Research Program is focused on filling knowledge gaps in three key topic areas--Injury Prevention, Acute Treatment, and Reset (activities necessary to return injured war fighters to duty readiness or ensuring a healthy return to civilian life).
"The debt we owe our brave war fighters for their sacrifices is immeasurable, therefore, we are deeply honored to do our part to help ensure everything is done to try to minimize the loss of life, improve the quality of life and reduce the long term impact of blast-related traumas faced by our men and women in uniform," said Alfredo Casta, President and CEO of Cascades Technologies, Inc. SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager Robert McCord added, "Nothing we do is more important than the service we provide to help ensure our military personnel can be successful and safe."
