Research Directorate

In order to meet requirements for multi-domain operations/large-scale combat operations (MDO/LSCO) and Prolonged Field Care (PFC) requirements, the Research Directorate's mission is to:

  • Increase capabilities of forward medical personnel with smart diagnostics, decision support, and robotic assist, as well as advanced drugs and other technologies (forward medical personnel can do more with less impact on the operational unit).
  • Reduce the burden of combat casualty care on operational units.
  • Maintain survivability of casualties during prolonged care and evacuation. Prevent wound progression (prevent relatively minor, survivable wounds from becoming life, limb, or eyesight threatening due to PFC conditions).
