Team members with U.S. Army Medical Materiel Development Activity participated in an arctic conditions assessment of its Freeze-Dried Plasma (FDP) program recently, partnering with the 11th Airborne Division at Fort Wainwright, Alaska to assess performance of its plasma kits as part of the Joint Pacific Multinational Readiness Center (JPMRC) exercise last month.

During the assessment in Alaska, 11th Airborne Division medical providers conducted scenario-based training for casualty treatment in real-world conditions. These scenarios included mass-casualty training, frontline field treatments, and airborne operations to test the FDP kits in conditions paratroopers may face during combat operations.
