Summary/Abstract: By studying the conflicts, it was concluded that the vast number of victims between the ranks of the medical personnel during every confrontation takes place while trying to treat the soldiers engaged in battle under enemy fire, and between the combatants, there are lots of casualties while providing support for the wounded comrades. There with, the human medical personnel performs difficult interventions in dangerous areas(e.g. mined or NBC contaminated). Autonomous systems could be having diverse applications, such as: victims’ localization,tactical retreats and evacuations, in-flight care for the wounded military personnel during the process of transportation, medicine delivery; telemedicine. The aim of this article is to analyse the existing and potential uses of autonomous systems regarding medical evacuation and support.
