Marshall wins French CT scanner contract
Marshall Land Systems has announced that its Marshall SV business has secured a contract with the French Ministry of Defence (MOD) to supply its deployable containerized CT scanner to the French Army. Marshall SV was selected in a competitive tender exercised by the NATO Maintenance and Supply Agency (NAMSA). The contract was announced 27 June 2012.
The CT scanner will be used by the Service de Santé des Armées (SSA), the French Defence Health Service, to provide medical and sanitary support to the armed forces and other organisations managed by the MOD. SSA includes both medical and administrative staff.
The scanner system is based on the Philips Healthcare 64 Slice Brilliance CT scanner that is fully integrated into a Marshall expandable shelter, providing a rugged and transportable system capable of deployment within 8 hours. The system is already in service with the UK MOD and the Norwegian Defence Forces.
The CT scanner system incorporates features normally associated with fixed hospital facilities; full radiation protection inbuilt within the shelter structure, protected operator area, full air conditioning and environmental control, and UPS back up equipment to preserve vital patient related data.
