Abstract : Modern warfare, military police and humanitarian actions, and special operations rely on the concept of joint/combined operations, between our sister services and our allies. Joint/combined operations include the aeromedical evacuation of the sick and injured. In peacetime, aeromedical evacuation-planners develop joint/ combined operation documents to standardize aeromedical evacuation procedures, policies, and equipment. The planning process identified one deficiency as a result of Desert Storm operations in Southwest-Asia in 1990/1991. The deficiency was the lack of a reference guide for informing aeromedical evacuation operators of the patient load capabilities of aeromedical evacuation aircraft. The U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory was tasked through the Air Standardization Coordinating Committee, Working Party 61/115, to-develop this reference.
