IAI is rewarded a new Army contract to develop a Secure Wireless Architecture for Combat Casualty Care.

Effective medical treatment at the Point of Injury (POI) can be of paramount importance for the recovery of injured warfighters. However, existing combat casualty care systems hinder rehabilitation because they are based upon proprietary systems and sensors. This makes it difficult to achieve secure and transparent wireless connectivity for medical monitoring, intervention, and communications with civilian and military networks. IAI will develop an effective Secure Wireless Architecture for Combat Casualty Care (SWAC3) that enables efficient, secure, and wireless integration of diverse medical sensors, ruggedized smart phones, military radios, and other portable computing platforms with government and commercial networks. SWAC3 will effectively advance combat casualty assessment, monitoring, and intervention through enhanced patient monitoring, encounter documentation, medical information exchange,, and telemonitoring from any location. The solution would enable secure wireless handheld telemedicine utilizing advanced Ultra Wideband (UWB) wireless communication technology combined with NSA-approved security mechanisms. These features will significantly enhance capabilities of Enroute Combat Casualty Care and help minimize battlefield mortality. The key innovation of this program is IAI’s development of a secure UWB communication development kit that provides capability for medical sensor or smartphone manufacturers, Nett Warrior developers, tactical radio operators, and others to use SWAC3 to implement secure wireless UWB interface and achieve seamless secure wireless integration with other elements of the system.
