Protecting the Warfighter

Aware is transforming the human ear into a versatile hub for enhancing health and well-being. Our primary mission is to safeguard the well-being of America's Warfighters by leveraging pioneering technologies. Warfighters, whether in active combat or training, confront a multitude of challenges daily, encompassing issues like hearing impairment, physical strain, injuries, and mental stress. Aware's innovative in-ear devices represent the forefront of wearable technology. They offer a wide array of advantages, spanning from preserving hearing to gathering invaluable cognitive and physiological insights through continuous biometric monitoring as well as augmented hearing to enhance the warfighter situational awareness. Our Hearables are meticulously crafted to cater to the unique requirements of Warfighters, bolstering safety, preparedness, and performance, all while furnishing a strategic advantage.

Superior Hearing Protection

Hearing loss is alarmingly prevalent within the US Military, and the good news is that it's entirely preventable. Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) and tinnitus rank as the top two causes of disability claims among veterans, shedding light on the limitations of conventional hearing protection methods. What's even more shocking is that over 50% of combat soldiers suffer from some form of hearing loss, underscoring
the failure of one-size-fits-all solutions. These failures primarily stem from poor fit, but they also arise from the fact that they obstruct situational awareness and hinder communication. Consequently, soldiers often remove their ear protection to communicate effectively and maintain awareness of the environment they operate in, as they aptly put it, "I would rather be deaf than dead."

We are dedicated to engineering innovative wearables that seamlessly integrate into the lives of our military personnel. Our goal is to make hearing protection virtually invisible while delivering highly precise and actionable insights. In the field, every ounce of protection and competitive advantage is crucial, which is why we've developed ear-powered innovations. These innovations provide effective hearing protection, enhance natural hearing capabilities, offer real-time biometric monitoring and nonpharmacological therapies. Best of all, they come in the form of comfortable headphones that soldiers already wear daily. By combining advanced technology with a deep understanding of the unique needs of our warfighters, Aware is playing a vital role in safeguarding their well-being and ensuring their peak performance during critical missions.

Augmented Hearing, Biometrics & Situational Awareness

The Aware Hearables represent a significant leap forward in hearing protection. They go beyond traditional safeguards to offer augmented hearing capabilities that can adjust sounds based on frequency and direction. But that's not all – these hearables also serve as a versatile platform for the seamless integration of wearable biometric sensors and neurofeedback contacts, allowing for the collection of medical-grade data. Our advanced technology can selectively amplify, suppress, or block sounds, providing both top-tier protection and an enriched auditory experience, all while gathering vital biometric information and non pharmacologic therapies to help with stress, sleep and other conditions. At Aware, we are unwavering in our commitment to pioneer ear-powered innovations that prioritize the well-being of our Warfighters. Our goal is to ensure their safety and enhance their performance in the field using cutting-edge, unobtrusive wearable technology.

Aware EarShield

Aware EarShield: our new line of hearing protection blends optimal fit with the most advanced materials to offer ear-shielding defense while preserving essential hearing levels. Aware EarShield is not just about blocking noise; it’s about delivering optimal ear protection without compromising communication and awareness. Warfighters often remove traditional earplugs to communicate and maintain situational awareness, preferring compromised hearing over compromised safety. Aware EarShield addresses this by offering advanced protection that doesn’t obstruct essential sounds, ensuring Warfighters are ready and protected in every situation.

Aware EarDefender

Aware EarDefender offers complete noise-blocking solutions, integrating communication electronics to retain situational awareness and a shielding format allowing conversational level hearing, achieved through our proprietary material.

Aware EarShield & EarDefender ensure a perfect fit with the eFit™ non-contact ear scanner, enabling the 3D printing of custom earpieces tailored to each soldier's unique ear shape. This precision fit creates a perfect seal, allowing the superior performance of Aware’s in-ear devices' advanced noise-blocking materials, ensuring maximum safety across diverse environments. Aware also recognizes the vital role of rest and leisure in maintaining a Warfighter’s state of readiness and offers premium sleep plugs.
