The MedUAV is a hybrid medical resupply and casualty evacuation

(CASEVAC), vertical take-off and landing (VTOL), unpiloted aerial

vehicle (UAV). Utilizing a new mobile life support for trauma and

transport (MLSTAT) stretcher system, the technology enables the resupply

of medical logistics to combat medics, thus allowing them to

provide the best treatment and subsequent evacuation of combat

casualties from hostile situations onboard the MedUAV.

The MedUAV is driven by hybrid systems in addition to its conventional

jet engine. It is equipped with an electrical motor capable of providing

hover lift at zero airspeed, cruising to speeds of up to 150 knots and

a cruise ceiling of about 10,000 feet with a payload of 4 patients and

full gear for 3 hours. The unmanned platform will also carry passive

and active defense measures.

The platform will be equipped with mobile life support for trauma

and transport (MLSTAT) systems, enabling remote monitoring of

the patient’s condition and emergency treatment. A wireless vital

signs monitor strapped to the patient’s forehead provides real-time

transmission of physiological parameters to a computerized bracelet

worn by the medical doctor to assist in the triage. The systems allow

the doctor to adjust respiration systems and to dispense fluids and

medications.

Israel Aerospace Industries-Malat division, Elbit Systems and Urban

Aeronautics, alongside many other civilian and military emergency

medical evacuation agencies and services, are taking part in the

project, facilitated by the Fisher Brothers Institute for Air and Space

Strategic Studies.
