Training Military Medical Personnel for Respond for Directed Energy Weapons and Technology Casualties on Humanitarian Missions
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
STS International proposes to develop combat casualty standards of care for assessing injuries, identifying treatment protocols, and developing triage and care processes related to exposure to Directed Energy (DE) weapons for the purpose of reducingcasualties and enhancing unit combat enhancements. STS will also demonstrate the feasibility of converting the training doctrine into high fidelity, mission oriented, multi-media based training simulations for response to Directed Energy Weapon threats.The primary objective of these training simulations will be to teach medical care providers the critical decision making skills needed to effectively detect the threat, assess the situation, and treat casualties injured in a DE event. . In order toproperly respond to a DE threat, medical professionals must possess an array of knowledge, skills and experience such that the proper critical decisions can be made when faced with varying risks and courses of action. This situational awareness is acomplex cognitive activity that cannot be acquired through training that focuses on the acquisition of procedural knowledge. Simulation training allows students to be engaged in situations that challenge their cognitive, psychomotor and affective domainsthus facilitating the development of both experience and judgment.
