The Inaugural

Biomechanical Engineering and Anthropometry Meeting (BEAM)


Join us for presentations, discussions, and opportunities to collaborate on work that seeks to maximize mission effectiveness and safety across the DoD, Industry and Academia.

What originated as a collaboration between the anthropometric laboratories from the United States military services (US Air Force, US Army, US Navy, & US Marine Corps) has grown to represent a range of interests from government to academia. All efforts relate back to human size and shape variation, and its role in everything from equipment accommodation and injury prevention to database development.
