Accurate and complete medical records are important for the best medical care of war fighters. The current method for capturing diagnostic and treatment data in the field is the use of a Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Card (a.k.a. Ranger Card or DA FORM 7656) which more often than not is left blank in the heat of battle. Hands free, voice recording of critical information at the scene would be a more effective method for capturing data in this situation. That is if the recording device can withstand the rugged environment, and the voice recording can be made without interference from significant background noise. Noise sources, like multiple rifle shots and engine or helicopter noise must be actively minimized, so that the recording can be played back without loss of fidelity. IAI proposes to further develop the phase I portable data recorder design with superior noise canceling capabilities that are tailored to the specific noise environment of the battlefield as well as the unique operator pool of the US Military.
