"The Army medical community needs a small ruggedized computer for use in combat casualty care and field health support operations. This device must meet the functional needs and requirements of the field medical first responder and be of a rugged naturesufficiently robust to withstand and operate in the severe environmental conditions operationaly encountered. In response to this requirement, Paravant proposes a coordinated modification and redevelopment effort to provide an operating Rugged Medichandheld computer, using Paravant's existing RHC-1000 (Windows CE/Linux) and RHC-500 (Palm OS) rugged handheld computer designs as a baseline. The resulting Rugged Medic computer will provide a unique environmentally sealed implementation of the (PIC)read and write system, as well as a user available PCMCIA interface card slot to facilitate such functionality as high speed wireless LAN, FDA certified diagnostic modules such as the QRS EKG, commercial and military SASM equipped GPS, and other type IIPCMCIA based custom and commercial peripherals.
