Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will provide the USMC with a lightweight, compact, deployable litter to meet the challenges of emergency evacuation and transport of injured Marines. Current litter technology does not meet the strength requirements associated with high-g loading during a vehicle crash scenario. During the Phase I and Phase II programs, PSI demonstrated a new litter architecture that not only meets the JECETS loading, but also is half the weight and volume of current litter systems. The Phase II Follow-on effort will improve on the litter design by improving durability, reducing cost, and addressing other aspects of the litter function such as ease of use and decontamination. In addition, the team will address the manufacturability of the litter system, reducing cost while maintaining performance. The output of the Phase II program will be a production-ready design with prototype units delivered for Government testing. The Phase II Follow-on Option will consist of the design, prototype, and testing for a bracket that can reposition the Portable Patient Transport Life Support System laterally in order to better balance the weight for easier hand transport. The bracket will allow positioning in two modes: Vehicle Transport mode (Longitudinal) and Carry mode (Lateral).
