Warfighter Health, Performance and Evacuation PMO is the point of entry for all U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command carry-on medical equipment into the Airworthiness evaluation process. A certification of airworthiness aboard the appropriate platform(s) consists of two major tasks: one performed by the Aviation Engineering Directorate, the other by the U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory:

  • Ensure safety compatibility with the host platform(s) (crew and aircraft safety)
  • List all limitations or restrictions on the use of subject equipment by medical personnel (patient safety)

USAMRDC performs component level testing of carry-on medical equipment to determine critical electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) of the medical equipment on the operation of the host platform.
