    Indian Air Force Developed ARPIT Pod


    Helis, July 12, 2020 - New Delhi - The Indian Air Force (IAF) has designed, developed and inducted an indigenous Airborne Rescue Pod for Isolated Transportation (ARPIT).

    The ARPIT is used for the evacuation of critical patients with infectious diseases including Coronavirus (COVID-19) from high altitude area, isolated and remote places.

    The need to have such a pod was critical as the IAF is sent out on several rescue missions and this helps the crew in controlling the spread.

    The isolation system has a suitable number of air exchanges, integration of medical monitoring instruments, and ventilation for an incubated patient.

    This indigenously designed system has been developed at a cost of Rs 60,000 ( us$ 800 ), which is very less when compared to imported systems which cost up to Rs 60 lakh ( us$ 80,000 ) a piece, an IAF spokesman stated.
