The United States Air Force Critical Care Air Transport (CCAT) mission is an American military tradition that has saved thousands of lives by providing airborne medical care to the critically ill and wounded. This life-saving mission is executed by CCAT teams, which usually consist of a critical care physician, critical care nurse, and respiratory therapist. A Front-end Analysis has found several problems within the CCAT system, justifying a need for further examination. Members from the 711th Human Performance Wing Human System Integration Directorate, Survivability Vulnerability Information Analysis Center, and the Naval Postgraduate School, formed an analysis team to conduct a Capabilities Based Assessment (CBA) on the CCAT system using a Human Systems Integration (HSI) perspective. The CBA identifies current and future capability gaps in the CCAT system, and provides prioritized HSI domain and Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership Policy and Education, Personnel, Facilities, and Policy (DOTmLPF-P) recommendations that will close those gaps. This thesis documents how the analysis team applied HSI principles throughout the CBA process. It demonstrates the importance of the human perspective and examines how specific HSI Tools, Techniques, Approaches, and Methods (TTAMs) can be used in the early stages of the Department of Defense acquisition process.
