John Murray, a retired four-star general and the first chief of Army Futures Command, will be a strategic adviser to the board of Vita Inclinata, whose products stabilize helicopter loads, the company announced today.
A Vita Inclinata system that stabilizes litters during medical evacuations has been featured at the Project Convergence experiments, which AFC organizes. That system allows helicopters to lift wounded soldiers more quickly than current technology allows, and it minimizes spin that can exacerbate injuries.
“I firmly believe that the technology Vita is delivering to our warfighters will make MEDEVAC operations safer and ultimately save lives,” Murray said in a press release from the company. “I’m committed to helping Vita disrupt traditional U.S. Government contract development by identifying solutions to ‘cross the valley of death.’”
Paul Ostrowski, a retired three-star and former principal military deputy to the Army acquisition executive, has also recently joined Vita Inclinata’s board, according to the press release.
