The Aviation and Missile Command in Huntsville, Alabama has built a 20lb Quick-MEDS projectile which would be packed with blood, bandages, an oxygen generator and other ciritcal care supplies, vaccines and antitodes. Designed for situations where flying a manned medical helicopter is too dangerous, the projectile is meant to be dropped (or shot) from an unmanned drone flying near a battlefield, allowing the possibility of some treatment before the medics can get to the wounded.
