This paper presents three unique but similar capabilities for comparison Mobile Field Surgical Team and Expeditionary Critical Care Team MFSTECCT, Special Operations Surgical Team SOST, and Tactical Critical Care Evacuation Team and Tactical Critical Care Evacuation Team-Enhanced TCCETTCCET-E. In an effort to understand the similarities and differences between these three capabilities, the current en-route system will first be defined, and then each capability will be further analyzed independently by looking at the following elements mission, Air Force Specialty Code AFSC composition, training platform, and equipment assemblages. Comparing the different elements of these capabilities provides the framework to discuss operational challenges of each capability as it relates to current and future operational environments. Identifying operational challenges leads to the development of broad Courses of Action COAs that may lay the foundation to mitigate these challenges and enhance the overall casualty movement system.
