Research Institution

RE2, Inc. proposes to develop a specialized payload for the Squad-Multipurpose Equipment Transport (S-MET) vehicle to assist the combat medic with extraction of a combat casualty in dangerous environments. The combat medic is one of the most dangerous and demanding responsibilities in warfare. Often in the course of reaching, assessing, and treating a wounded soldiers injuries, the combat medic and other personnel are placed directly in harms way. As a result many medics and soldiers have been injured or killed while trying to save others under hostile conditions. There is on-going interest to understand how unmanned robotics technologies can be used to reduce the risk of injury to the combat medic and other personnel when attempting to rescue and extract wounded soldiers in hostile or dangerous situations. The solution that is proposed to be designed as a payload for the S-MET vehicle, named LIFELINE, is intended to be a practical and relatively uncomplicated solution for unmanned casualty extraction with the goal of getting the casualty from the point of injury to the unmanned S-MET transport vehicle as quickly as possible for eventual transport back to a Casualty Collection Point or a Medical Evacuation Point.
