U.S. Army Capt. Craig Roberts and Sgt. Chris Laird, from the 1st Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, showcased the Health Readiness and Performance System to Lt. Gen. David M. Hodne, deputy commanding general, Futures and Concepts. The system utilizes tracking applications to monitor a Soldier’s health. This demonstration took place during Role I medical experimentation on Fort Irwin, California, on March 14, 2024, as part of Project Convergence – Capstone 4.

During the experimentation, Hodne also observed other new medical technologies like the patient litter system, HRAP, training aids, and patient treatment systems used in Role I and II of PC-C4. Role I focuses on initial trauma care for incoming patients, while Role II provides advanced trauma management and surgery. The U.S. Army will host PC-C4, a Joint, Multinational experiment from February 23 to March 20, 2024.

Participants in PC-C4 include the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Space Force, along with militaries from allied countries like the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, France, and Japan. PC-C4 serves as a culmination of various exercises, experimentations, and events, aimed at identifying and refining recommendations needed to transform the Army and ensure readiness for future conflicts.
