Saab Australia has signed an agreement with Marshall for the delivery of scanners under the Australian Defense Force’s JP 2060 Phase 3 program for deployable health capabilities.

As part of the deal, engineering firm Marshall has agreed to deliver three military CT scanners for use in the deployable medical modules being developed for JP 2060 Phase 3.

In 2020, Saab Australia and the Department of Defense entered into an agreement for the delivery of 550 deployable health modules for use in the Australian Defense Force. The contract, which has been valued at $370 million, is expected to be executed between 2020 and 2024, and with the modules hosting operating theaters, X-ray capabilities, CT scans and intensive care units.

Marshall’s scanners are expected to allow medical staff to better diagnose patients, providing staff with enhanced healthcare capabilities.

“Safe, efficient and reliable medical equipment is essential to Australia’s deployable healthcare capability to deliver world-class clinical care,” said Andy Keough CSC, Managing Director of Saab Australia.

“That’s why we’re thrilled to have Marshall Land Systems on board. They are a leading provider of proven deployable health systems and their CT scanners are currently used by armed forces around the world.

Ray Cutting, general manager of Marshall Land Systems, pointed out that the company’s CT scanners have proven themselves in harsh environments.

“I am delighted that Saab Australia has decided to partner with us on this essential part of the JP 2060 Phase 3 programme,” he said.

“Our innovative, award-winning CT system is designed to meet clinicians’ needs for the highest quality diagnostic imaging, even in the most austere environments, and can be operational within four hours of arrival on site. .

“The unit will provide military surgeons with vital CT images on deployed operations to quickly and accurately diagnose trauma in critically injured patients. Potentially more lives will be saved.

According to a statement from Saab, the CT units were supplied by Philips and will be serviced by Philips’ Australian business unit.
