interoperable Medical Command and Control System – Joint (iMCCS-J)

The overall objective of the iMCCS-J is to support the integration of medical data with the AFRL, TAK suite of software and hardware. The Android Team Awareness Kit (ATAK), for civilian uses, or Android Tactical Assault Kit (also ATAK) for military uses, is a suite of software that provides geospatial information and allows user collaboration over geography. ATAK was originally developed by the AFRL and is now maintained by a Joint Product Center.

This RPP aims to establish prototypes with the ability to provide commanders at all levels with visual understanding of how medical capabilities are arrayed throughout the operational environment. iMCCS-J will ingest and visualize data to identify medical unit locations, unit capacity status, medical evacuation unit capacity status, and patient status. At a higher level, iMCCS-J will parse specific data elements from near real-time operational datasets to inform the intelligence cycle through wound types and rates which communicates enemy effectiveness, supports trend analysis, and identifies the enemy situational template. These requirements are derived from the Joint Concept for Health Services, Joint Health Services Joint Publication 4-02, and the Army Health System Doctrine Smart Book.

 

This effort shall deliver an initial prototype submission package for the iMCCS-J to the WHPE PMO for submission to TAK and NW. Proposed projects shall demonstrate the ability to develop and integrate near real-time data being captured from battlefield combat units, field medical platforms, and various Medical Treatment Facilities (MTF) data streams with the DoD, and TAK suite of software. A successful prototype will visualize medical data via field NW devices within the Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK), WinTAK, and TAK Servers. It is preferred that Offerors have experience with and/or sufficient knowledge of the TAK suite of software. The research project award recipient was selected from the Offerors who responded to MTEC’s Request for Project Proposals (21-08-iMCCS-J).

 

Interoperable Medical Command and Control System-Joint

Project Team: Augustine Consulting

Award Amount: $2.14M

Project Duration: 50 months

Project Objective: Augustine Consulting, Inc.’s (ACI’s) very-low risk Interoperable Medical Command and Control System – Joint (iMCCS-J) proposal expedites the development schedule by 40%, completing the project in 31 months, thus reducing overall project cost and time to fielding. Our solution addresses four identified capability gaps through a DevOps model that employs iterative Assess, Prototype, and Demonstrate cycles. We propose four development spirals that are synchronized with the Nett Warrior, MedHub, and Tactical Assault Kit development cycles that provide increasing capabilities at each demonstration phase. At successful completion of the iMCCS-J project, the Joint Medical Community will have a comprehensive MCOP that enables commanders and battle staff to make informed, near real-time decisions that extend the “Golden Hour” and dramatically increase Warfighter survivability.
