Warfighter Health, Performance and Evacuation

The Warfighter Health, Performance and Evacuation Project Management Office is a multidisciplinary team with broad mission capabilities for the advanced development of medical products used to sustain and support the combat Soldier. The product and logistics managers and model makers have expertise in project management, lifecycle management, engineering, fabrication, and technical testing.

Mission

Develop, rapidly prototype, and procure medical support products for field hospital infrastructure, preventive medicine, combat casualty care support systems, military operational medicine, and ground and aeromedical evacuation vehicles to sustain and support the Warfighter.

Vision

Optimal Force Health Protection through the integration of medical support solutions across the Army force structure.

The Warfighter Health, Performance, and Evacuation PMO is a multidisciplinary team with broad mission capabilities for the advanced development of medical products for the U.S. Army and the Defense Health Agency. The WHPE PMO's mission is to develop, procure and sustain the best medical evacuation, Combat Support Hospital/Hospital Center infrastructure, combat casualty care support, and operational and preventive medicine solutions for the Service Member.

The team consists of product and logistics managers and model makers, who have expertise in project management, lifecycle management, engineering, fabrication, and technical testing. The product managers analyze functional requirements, conduct market investigations, develop and execute technical and program strategies, and plan for all acquisition program phases from Milestone B through Full-Rate Production. Within the WHPE PMO resides the Medical Prototype Development Laboratory that designs, develops drawings and technical data packages, and rapidly prototypes far-forward medical equipment in support of the USAMRDC. The office's early involvement with products within the technology base streamlines development efforts by combining milestones and transitioning medical products rapidly to the logistician for procurement and fielding.

WHPE PMO supports 12 Unit Assemblages and 10 individual products**, in two separate areas, for the USAMRDC as its core responsibility in the following areas:

  • Preventive Medicine
  • Medical Evacuation and Treatment Platforms
  • Combat Support Hospital Infrastructure
  • Combat Casualty Care Support Systems
  • Operational Medicine
  • Decision Aids/Support Systems
  • Airworthiness Certification

Product managers direct program resources and defend program content and structure during science and acquisition forums.

WHPE PMO is involved in the early development of products that are within the technology base, resulting in streamlined development efforts by combining milestones and transitioning medical products rapidly for procurement and fielding. Consequently, product managers develop and execute broad acquisition strategies or monitor technology-based research efforts.
