How can you maintain a high level of aeromedical evacuation capability around the world at a reasonable cost? Field Aerospace has the answer: The Aeromedical Pallet System (AAPS). This portable aircraft conversion kit will reconfigure most modern cargo airframes into an airborne ambulance, quickly and cost-effectively.

Fast, safe aeromedical evacuation is a major priority-for humanitarian, commercial, and military operations. The system has an 8 x 10ft (88" x 108") footprint and can be rolled on and off aircraft.

Other footprints are also available to support other aircraft. The AAPS requires only 20 minutes to set up and secure. Tracks recessed into the top pallet surface allow rigid mechanical attachment of airline style seats or upright, three level stanchions for litters. Each pallet, as shipped, can accommodate six seated patients, six patients on litters, or three in each configuration. Multiple pallets can be installed in the same aircraft-allowing the following pallet/patient capacity for standard cargo aircraft. As an optional accessory, litter extensions can be used on a majority of cargo aircraft to increase litter capacity by up to two patients per system.

Aircraft Type Pallet Capacity Patient Capacity Patient Capacity w/ Extensions
KC135/B707 6 36 n/a
KC10/C10 27 162 216
C17 18 108 144
C130/L100 4 24 32

Other pallets currently being designed include a lavatory pallet, a comfort or rest pallet, and an executive pallet equipped with four seats around a tabletop workstation. Other kits in development include an electrical power and lighting kit and an oxygen kit. With its roll-on/ roll off capability, the AAPS can also be used to convert ships or large trucks into ambulances.

The pallets are provided in a fitted storage container that allows the entire system (with seats and/or litter stanchions) to be delivered as air cargo or stacked in storage facilities. The system is most effective when the pallets are ready for use when needed locally.
