Abstract : The Transportable Airborne Therapeutic Station (TATS) was designed to meet an urgent operational requirement for a carrier-container to facilitate the transport, orderly stowage, and convenient access to medical equipment, supplies and records during patient transport on multipurpose C-141 aircraft. The TATS consists of two specially designed compartmentalized structures that roll on casters and have mechanisms for securing them into the C-141 seat track at the medical crew station location. The TATS contains, and makes readily available, the medical and patient support equipment and supplies required for patient support during the airlift portion of aeromedical evacuation missions. The two TATS units are designated the Medical Crew Director (MCD) substation and the Medical (MED) substation. Evaluations indicated the TATS fulfilled the requirement and is recommended for operational use in support of Air Force aeromedical evacuation missions on C-141 aircraft. (Modified author abstract)
