Abstract:

The following background information is included as a convenience for the reader. For a summary of work executed during this contract period, please refer directly to the Summary of Work in Progress section of this report CTPS is the only Distributed Interactive Simulation system in existence. It is an integrated, distributed, interactive simulation system that mirrors the footprint of military medicine. It consists of networked realistic casualty generators, patient simulators and computer-based casualty simulations, virtual patients and equipment, data and sensor recorders, and an After- Action Review System. Other types of war-fighting simulations and medical simulations, including surgical simulations can be incorporated into the system. It simulates single, multiple, or mass casualties and provides realistic representation of Battlefield Medical Resource Management. It measures patient assessment and intervention, diagnosis and treatment from point of injury to post evacuation care. The purpose of the CTPS is to more realistically assess the impact of battlefield casualties, and increase soldier survivability. The system primarily consists of Commercial-off-the-shelf COTSGovernment-off-the-shelf GOTS live, virtual, and constructive simulation components.
