Organ Support & Automation Technologies (CRT3)

The mission of CRT3 is to deliver materiel and knowledge products that enhance Soldier survival at point of injury and during prolonged care outside of hospitals, as well as to develop, test, and validate new medical devices and systems using of state-of-the-art technologies in automation, advanced displays, artificial intelligence/machine learning, robotics, telemedicine, and computer vision to improve outcomes of combat casualties in current battlefields and future Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) where prolonged care (PC) or mass casualties are present.
