The Ohio State University Key Developments

The Ohio State University Fired Marching Band Director Settle Lawsuits

The Ohio State university announced the settlement January 18, 2017. A fired Ohio State University marching band director has dropped all his legal claims against the university in exchange for it agreeing not to try to recover its costs from him, Jonathan Waters was fired in July 2014 when the university he ignored a sexualized culture inside what's known to fans as The Best Damn Band in the Land. Waters denied wrongdoing and sued for reinstatement and damages in federal court, alleging gender discrimination. Separate litigation in state court alleged defamation. The allegations against Waters stemmed from an internal investigation and report that uncovered a host of band traditions and rituals that were racy, raunchy or suggestive. Waters challenged the finding that he had known about and ignored the activities.

The US Air Force Research Laboratory, 711th Human Performance Wing and the Ohio State University Reaches Cooperative Research and Development Agreement for Stress Evaluation and Recovery Methods for Warfighters

The US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), 711th Human Performance Wing (HPW), and the Ohio State University have reached a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) for stress evaluation and recovery methods for warfighters. The CRADA was signed to support personalised recovery of both uninjured athletes and warfighters who consistently train hard and are mission ready, the US Air Force (USAF) said in a statement. Under the agreed terms, OSU operates and maintains the technology and receives daily sports science reports and analytics from AFRL researchers. The 711th HPW will have access to immediate, continuous data to help develop personalised recovery procedures. The information regarding real-time exertion, daily readiness and heart rate variability technology will be used to measure stress and recovery states and determine the future workloads and specific recovery modalities to help athletes and warfighters. The OSU is currently involved in measuring the effectiveness of flotation therapy, a very advanced form of both physical and mental recovery.

Air Force Research Laboratory Signs Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the Ohio State University

The Air Force Research Laboratory, 711th Human Performance Wing, has signed a cooperative research and development agreement with the Ohio State University. Special operations units in the Defense Department are physically and mentally elite due to the training they endure. Since special operations personnel are not readily accessible at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, unique hands-on insight was required for rapid acceleration of human performance monitoring research, technology and tools for the battlefield. This collaboration will provide the 711th HPW access to immediate, continuous data so appropriate procedures can be developed using Division 1 college athletes that exhibit similar strength, power and mentality as special operations warfighters. The collected information results in a daily report for measuring stress and recovery states and determining the future workloads and specific recovery modalities to help athletes and ultimately warfighters. The data collected for personalized recovery are based off of real-time exertion, daily readiness and heart rate variability technology. Due to OSU's high quality athletic program and its close proximity to Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio, the 711th HPW will act as the sports science staff to the NCAA athletes and coaches at OSU.
