Abstract

In the near future, the Warfighter may face prolonged isolation and sustained denial of support on the battlefield, and may have no access to medical support. To become more resilient to these challenges, the Warfighter will need additional, innovative support to provide Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC). Intelligent decision-support software, teleoperated trauma care systems, and fully autonomous trauma care robotics are intriguing solutions. In addition to intelligently diagnosing multiple injuries, producing and performing prioritized TCCC treatment plans, solutions must continually monitor casualty condition to support diagnosis and intervention. To address these challenges, we propose to design and evaluate Autonomous Ruggedized Combat Casualty CareMonitor (ARC3-M), a modular, intelligent framework for autonomous combat casualty care. ARC3-M selectively deploys sensors, diagnostic laboratory tests, and imagery to continually monitor casualty condition to support diagnosis and intervention in traumatic injury.
