Saab accepts CT scanners from Marshall Land Systems
Saab Australia has moved another step closer to the delivery of Australia’s deployable health capability (JP2060 Phase 3) with the acceptance of three Military CT Scanners from technology and capability partner Marshall Land Systems.
Representatives from Saabattended an event at Marshall Land Systems’ manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom last week to formally accept the CT scanners and celebrate the project milestone.
Once operational and deployed, the scanners will enable field medical staff to create detailed diagnostic images of patients – enabling immediate and accurate treatment during military and humanitarian missions.
Saab Australia Managing Director, Andy Keough CSC, congratulated Marshall Land Systems and the Saab project team on the milestone.
“Saab has brought together world-leading technology providers and healthcare experts to deliver the JP2060 Phase 3 deployable health capability for the Australian Defence Force.
We’re delighted to have Marshall Land Systems as a partner and to be utilising their proven deployable health technology, including these CT scanners.
Safe, effective and reliable medical equipment is critical to ensuring the Australian Defence Force has the very best deployable health capability.”
Marshall Land Systems Managing Director Gary Moynehan said he was delighted Saab Australia representatives were able to visit the Cambridge manufacturing facility for the formal acceptance of the military CT scanning equipment.
“Our innovative and award-winning CT scanner system is designed to meet clinicians’ needs for the highest quality diagnostic imagery, even in the most austere environments, and can be operational within four hours of arrival in theatre. Our engineering has ensured that the containerised solution will bring a high level of mobility and flexibility to the field hospitals that will be deployed across the world.”
Through the AUD $370 million JP2060 Phase 3 project, Saab is delivering and providing support for field hospitals that are made up from over 550 deployable health modules. These modules include everything from hygiene and sanitations modules through to highly complex and high technology models such as surgical theatres, X-ray facilities, CT scanners, intensive care unit and pathology modules.
Saab and Marshall Land Systems are also working together on future global opportunities in deployable healthcare.
