1976年,澳大利亚从蒙特利尔比赛里回归,因为没有得到一枚个人金牌而发生了集体反对的事件。

一个令人鼓舞的8枚金牌,在1972年慕尼黑奥运会后,澳大利亚政府的回应是导演的资金走向世界领先的体育学院。

澳大利亚运动组织(AIS1981年在堪培拉成立,当时是一个为了训练最佳年轻大学生运动员的训练协会。

然后在1990年,合作性研究中心(CRC)项目被建立去提高澳大利亚的工业,商业,和经济增长。

Holthouse Igor van de GriendtCatapult的最终建立者,领导了一只以前所未有的方式部署了新兴的微科技的CRC研究员队伍。

通过和不同的产业伙伴合作,Shaun Holthouse Igor van de GriendtAIS开始了一个项目。

在独一无二的基于证据的可科学性增强运动表现的方法实现了之后,AIS开始测量运动员体能表现的各个方面。

监测精英运动员主要地是以实验室的研究为主,然而,因为依赖于使用体育馆设备的参加者们-他们提供了对于精英运动需求的伟大洞见,但是因为运动员不是在他们本来的环境下,他们不能够按自然法则地就像他们在比赛中做的那样发挥自己。

为了将实验结果运用到草地上去,CRC发展了可穿戴的传感器,这样对于运动员来说就是更加可以接受的,可以更加的按常规地部署开来。

成功发展了针对2004雅典奥运会的技术之后,旨在商业化产品,Catapult在之后的2006年诞生。

Catapult从那之后就成为了在运动员分析学领域里的全球性领导者,通过运动科学和分析学的交互作用保护了数千精英运动员。

基于Catapult的研究型革新,它给予了对于运动员不稳定情况,准备状态和回到运动状态的一个洞见。

为了提高运动员的表现,Catapult将经过科学验证的度量授权给全球的教练员们。
