The potential impact of altitude decompression sickness on special operations missions may manifest primarily in high altitude airdrop operations and operations using unpressurized aircraft such as AC- 130 and the CV-22 Osprey. Research at AFRL Brooks AFB on altitude DCS has for many years produced findings directly applicable to SOF mission scenarios. This paper summarizes 3 areas of research with current applicability.
- Medicine and Medical Research
- Stress Physiology
