Abstract
Contingency Operations constitute a diverse array of military missions that include peacekeeping, humanitarian aid, peacemaking/enforcement, full scale offensive actions, and relief operations other than war such as aid to civil powers in counterterrorism and in natural disasters. The increasing prevalence of Contingency Operations in NATO missions presents some significant and unique challenges to aircrew health, safety and performance. This Symposium was held to review and discuss different technological solutions for facilitating aeromedical support in Contingency Operations. Aeromedical support issues were addressed in four imporant areas: (1) Sustained and Continuous Operations, (2) Medical Management in Remote Locations, (3) Medical Information, and (4) Adaptation to Operational Conditions.
