In recent years, NAMRL has focused on addressing the fleet's most pressing aeromedical needs.
Another current NAMRL research program focuses on the assessment and prediction of fatigue and aviator performance.
Another line of NAMRL research concerns countermeasures.
NAMRL is investigating the efficacy of an even lower dose of scopolamine delivered in a spray form to be used as a fleet-ready motion sickness medication.
Among the actions taken to create the center was the relocation of NAMRL from NAS Pensacola to Wright-Patterson.
