Award to fund Wiegmann project on medical evacuations

Industrial and Systems Engineering Associate Professor Doug Wiegmann and research associate Chris Johnson have received $50,000 from the UW-Madison Graduate School and a 50-percent research assistant funding allocation from WARF for a one-year project to create a simulation system for aviation-based medical rescues. The team will look at incorporating advanced weather simulation technology with flight simulation and patient simulation to combine the roles of pilots, physicians, medics, and operational support professionals.
