Imagine an automated medical treatment system that does not require onsite medical personnel on the front lines of battle, and is ready to
receive, assess, and stabilize wounded soldiers during the critical hours following injury.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is moving toward that goal. DARPA announced today it has awarded
an SRI International-led multi-organization team a US$12 million, two-year contract to develop such a revolutionary system.
"The goal of the project is to demonstrate the feasibility of performing automated and semi-automated surgery in a way that will be useful for
providing advanced surgical care to soldiers on the battlefield," John Bashkin, head of business development at SRI International, told
a robot surgeon???
wow this is amazing
anyone else think this will be affective???
