PBCM Test Team
AFOTEC’s Detachment 2 test team, lead by Maj. Phillip Hoyt, is at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina testing the Portable Bio-Containment Module (PBCM) on airworthiness requirements on the C-17 aircraft along with several other key areas during this Joint Urgent Operational Need testing event. PBCM is an existing capability currently being used by the Department of State. With the urgent need to transport as many as 4,000 American citizens from overseas per month, PBCM is one of many options the Air Force is considering to transport infectious patients. This testing is just one of a series of testing that AFOTEC is conducting to support the current COVID-19 pandemic.
