Abstract:

Recent advances in both medical technologies and teleoperated robotics have presented opportunities for taking advanced medical care into battlefield situations. Research and development, as well as field ready capabilities, are reviewed to identify appropriate functional areas for formulation of an advanced integrated medical care system for battlefield casualties. Areas of special interest to the Australians are identified as are areas of special interest to the United States U.S.. A Draft Program Plan DPP is formulated based on civilian, and military need, and Australian and U. S. materiel development interests. The DPP is presented as a working document to be revised as more data is acquired and additional coordination is performed.
