Technology

 

The United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee offers cutting-edge sport technology to provide performance measurement, insights and feedback that help athletes and coaches make informed decisions about training and competition. By discovering and integrating applied technologies into training regimens, the USOPC helps Team USA athletes and coaches better assess and enhance performance.

USOPC sport technologists are charged with implementing new applications through consultation, education and NGB partnerships. Technologists offer key insights through a variety of platforms, including wearable technology, predictive analytics, video analysis, and comparison and feedback devices that enhance perceptual skills. Athletes also have access to wireless video, DVD and podcast feedback, high-speed video analysis, motion tracking sensors and heads-up display.

Additionally, the USOPC offers NGBs access to short-term equipment loans, including video analysis software, data collection tools, international power solutions and wireless transmission equipment. The USOPC also delivers education and training to NGBs on topics like team scouting and software training, while also utilizing corporate sponsorships with companies like Panasonic and Dartfish for technology development.

The USOPC Technology and Innovation Fund was created in 2017 to support performance-impacting projects for the Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Games. With commitments in place through 2022, the fund helps support long-term integration into NGB performance planning with varied summer, winter and multisport applications.
