In the future fight, medics on the ground will need advanced equipment to help manage mass casualties that could arise from a strike from an adversary. The Army is answering this challenge by developing solutions to provide cloud-based systems to transmit and store medical data. In addition, it is expected that sensors will be ubiquitous on the future battlefield and that this could provide real-time data to commanders. Potentially, a medic on the ground could be walked through a complicated, life-saving procedure by someone from a remote location.
