SAE-Funded CAESAR Project Earns Federal Laboratory Consortium Award

WARRENDALE, Pa., March 13, 2008 - The Civilian American and European Surface Anthropometry Resource (CAESARTM) project, coordinated by SAE International, is the recipient of the 2008 Award for Excellence in Technology Transfer.   

The award will be presented by the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer at its national meeting May 8 in Portland, Ore.  The award recognizes outstanding work in transferring a technology from a federal laboratory to the commercial marketplace.

Organized by SAE International's Cooperative Research Program, CAESAR is a database of human body measurements collected from 4,400 participants in the U.S., Canada and Europe.  These populations were chosen because they represent a wide diversity of sizes.  The results of this research study benefit designers from a variety of industries who are looking to create products that best fit today's bodies.
