An Automated System Framework for Pre-Mission Success Evaluation of Medical Emergency Helicopters Operations – Derived Mission Capability Sub-Module 2002-01-2965

Helicopter medical emergency services are resorted to, when time, accessibility and medical attendance are critical factors in life saving. Time-based mission analysis to support decisions is critical for mission accomplishment. Presently, pre-mission analysis for decision support is crew-judgment dependent; and hence, prone to human errors. A systems methodology to holistically analyse mission and support crew decisions has been developed. The factors considered for analysis are operational, human and machine. As decision are time critical, the system methodology for pre-mission analysis needs to be automated. In this paper, the overview of an automated pre-mission success analysis is presented, followed by detailed discussion on the development of ‘Derived Mission Capability’ (DRCA) sub-module. The DRCA sub-module is designed to analyse the capabilities inherent in the mission payloads.
