The Portable Life Support Stretcher Unit PLSSU is being developed to provide a patient litter with all necessary features. The PLSSU is similar in configuration to a standard canvas litter. This allows it to interface with all military aircraft and vehicles designed to carry casualties on canvas litters. Standard military aircraft litter rack equipment, hoists, and securing equipment designed for the canvas litter can be used without modification. An important feature of the PLSSU is that it quickly transforms a utility helicopter or other transport vehicle into an equipped MEDEVAC unit, and just as quickly returns it to utility status. During a MEDEVAC operation, the patient is carried on a canvas litter, backboard, or Stokes litter, all of which can be attached to the PLSSU.
