Drones are devices that are changing the world. This time, the US Army is testing aircraft to deliver medical supplies such as blood bags and other essentials for soldiers in hostile battlefield scenarios. The procedure took place as part of an exercise in California organized by Project Crimson (part of the project Convergence). The resource could change the scenario in emergency situations in which sending support would be impossible, and the soldiers needed to treat the wounded.
Second Nathan FisherHead of Medical Robotics and Autonomous Systems at the U.S. Army Center for Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research:
🇧🇷Project Crimson adapts a conventional unmanned aerial system to support the medical mission (…) This drone supports medical care in the field when evacuation of the wounded is not possible. It can cool whole blood and other important items in a self-contained portable refrigeration unit and deliver them to medics in the field with wounded soldiers.”
Project Crimson is adapting a conventional unmanned aerial system to support the medical mission.
In this case they used drone FVR-90 manufactured by L3Harris Technologies. The machine can fly like an airplane from 12 to 18 hours, can operate at sea or on land, with a load capacity of up to 10 kg.
The US Army tested other important means on the battlefield
Seizing the opportunity, the US Army tested remote diagnostics and communications for use on the battlefield. Among the analyzed tools, the Battlefield Assisted Trauma Distributed Observation Kit stands out. (BATDOC)🇧🇷 This is an application for smartphones with sensors placed on patients, scanning vital signs and other information related to the treatment of a person in situations of risk.

Michael Zedillodirector of aviation systems for the US Air Force Research Laboratory’s Integrated Cockpit Detection Program, explained:
Continuation after commercial
“The institution can see the patient’s condition in real time, while doctors on site can update treatments and drugs (…) This allows the institution to be alerted, collect and prepare for treatment of the patient as soon as he is transported.”
