Vita Inclinata CEO Accomplishes Mission: Hand Delivers American-Made Search & Rescue Tech To Ukraine Fighters In Active War Zone

Posted by Admin

BROOMFIELD, CO, and WASHINGTON, DC,  — Vita Inclinata today announced CEO Caleb Carr’s successful mission to hand-deliver his company’s donated Vita Rescue System (VRS) for helicopter rescue load stabilization into the active Ukrainian war zone. On April 13, 2022—with support of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs and the State Emergency Service—a Russian Mil Mi-8 twin-turbine helicopter was provided to conduct VRS medevac training in Uzhgorod. As a result, Ukrainian Special Aviation Unit crews can now airlift wounded civilians and warfighters using a helicopter hoist in two minutes versus the typical 20-minute process, a capability the Ukrainians have not been trained in before. Due to this engagement, the State Emergency Service of Ukraine has formally requested 30 VRS systems to extend this medevac capability to their fire and rescue units on the eastern front.
