Development - Testing - Demonstrations
The HiRO system platform is built on a foundation of expandability for a spectrum of requirements informed by battlefield need. Input on design and use cases has been received from experts from the Departments of Homeland Security and Defense. HiRO’s current generation of capabilities has resulted from numerous hours of meetings with institutions such as: DHS, DOD, Stop the Bleed Campaign experts at the White House, and local drone experts to advise technical and lifecycle requirements.
In accordance with these various institutions, the HiRO system is a scalable, durable and highly-portable multi-casualty triage medical supply kit with integrated telecommunications and casualty monitoring systems that can be autonomously deployed using unmanned aerial vehicles or conventional delivery methods.
The HiRO has undergone 100+ hours of field testing under deliberately harsh, battlefield simulated conditions of weather, reduced visibility, and wind interference.
The HiRO system has been in development since 2013 and is currently engaged in prototype testing and scenario demonstrations including the PATRIOT South 18 joint agency excercise hosted at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center and Gulfport Combat Readiness Training Center, February 13 – 16, 2018.
