Abstract

Combat medics can quickly be overcome with the variety and number of injuries received by fellow warfighters. Virtual Interactive Presence and Augmented Reality (VIPAR) systems already in place have shown great potential in alleviating these problems, but require too many prerequisites to use in the field. Expensive and specialized pieces of hardware are an additional strain on warfighters, and often times requiring supplemental training. Systems designed and tested on broadband speed, high fidelity, networks are unsuitable for the tumultuous nature of a JTRS network. To satisfy these needs ATC-NY will develop TELTAN, TELemedicine over a TActical Network. TELTAN is a multi-platform VIPAR system emphasizing operation in low fidelity networks, with low bandwidth overhead.
