tiag® and CoachMePlus Expand Innovative Human Performance Technology for U.S. Navy

Warrior Performance Platform Improves Sailor Well-Being
Through Nutrition, Fitness and Human Performance at Sea and Ashore


RESTON, Va., September 13, 2018 – Designed to enhance the performance and well-being of U.S. Navy sailors, the innovative Warrior Performance Platform (WP2™) is being further expanded after successful completion of the initial research-focused effort. tiag® — an innovative technology services firm and systems integrator esteemed for unique approaches, synergistic processes and transformational solutions — teamed with CoachMePlus to develop WP2 for the Department of Defense (DoD) community. In this second phase of the program, the partner companies are prototyping WP2 as an interactive, human performance kiosk and mobile application system that tracks and promotes sailor nutrition, physical activity and wellness at sea and ashore.

Supporting U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) and Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), WP2 provides the military with cutting-edge, sports science research software to track and safeguard a warrior’s health and performance. Integrating personal electronic devices and wireless wearables, WP2 features an interactive, self-service kiosk that displays data for nutrition, wellness, physical activity and performance metrics. Each sailor has access to an individual portal designed to personalize nutrition, training, recovery and wellness programs that maximize recovery and resilience. The technology synchronizes with the DoD Go for Green® (G4G) joint service performance-nutrition initiative, USDA MyPlate nutrition guide, Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System, among other Navy programs and nutritional information databases. The WP2 platform also includes a training inventory that complies with the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

“We are honored to support the Navy’s focus on sailor well-being and its investments in human performance-related technologies designed to improve force readiness,” says Dan McCarron, tiag’s Vice President of Operations and National Security. “This real-time sharing of information will help the Navy turn valuable data into actionable insights.”

McCarron notes that real-time monitoring of those serving aboard Navy ships around the world requires an intuitive platform, fully compliant with the latest cybersecurity protocols and military grade encryption. Bringing expertise aligned with the purpose-built, state-of-the-art human performance technology required for the WP2 platform, tiag was recently awarded as prime contractor for Information Management / Information Technology (IM/IT) support of the ArmyFit program that accelerates force readiness and resilience for U.S. Army soldiers. In addition to supporting the Navy, CoachMePlus clients range from other branches of the military and championship professional teams, to NCAA Division 1 programs, leading private training facilities and the performing arts.
