Abstract:

The UH-600 prototype MEDEVAC Black Hawk is configured to provide day night, adverse weather, emergency movement of patients. The objective of this report is to describe the ability of the prototype aircraft to perform typical aeromedical evacuation missions. The prototype aircraft with typical crew performed five simulated day and night medical evacuation missions as described in the Materiel Need Statement for the Dustoff UH-600. Medical aidmen and aviators rated the medical interior and avionics systems and provided comments on their in-flight experiences. The prototype UH-600 Black Hawk is capable of performing the typical MEDEVAC missions. Nondevelopmental components of the medical interior require some refinements including improved vertical clearance for litters, improved durability, and environmental tolerance. Communications and cabin lighting. require additional study to refine these requirements. UH- 600, MEDEVAC black hawk, Medical equipment, Evacuation, Aeromedical evacuation mission.
