Eyak Development Corp. in Falls Church, VA received a $8.9 million firm-fixed-price contract to provide testing services for the U.S. Army’s Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics (ANAM) program for deploying service members of the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, and U.S. Marines.
The ANAM program was set up to provide cognitive assessment for U.S. service members because of concern about brain injuries caused by explosions, resulting in concussions. A concussion may cause changes which include a slower reaction time, headaches, irritability, memory impairments, and sleep difficulty. These symptoms may result in decreased performance. One reason that such a concussion can go unnoticed is that symptoms may not be obvious.
