25 Jun 08. Atos Origin, Thales and Rockwell Collins announced that the L22
tactical data link in the Link 22 Unit Controller and Interoperability
Demonstrator (LUCID) has successfully passed interoperability tests. The
demonstrator was tested and validated by the French and German navies during
a joint exercise in the North Sea, in conjunction with the German system
LINSE (Link Integration für Nicht System Einheiten), to a range of more than
1,200 kilometers. Link L22 will eventually become one of the hubs for the
joint multimedia tactical data links to be deployed towards 2015.
25 Jun 08. MoD medics get latest blood transfusion technology on operations. Armed Forces medical staff on operations in Afghanistan and Iraq are being equipped with new blood supply kit which means badly injured troops can be treated more effectively. The new equipment means combat medics can quickly call on an improved supply of “platelets” – a key part of human blood vital in generating blood clots which is used to help stop massive loss of blood caused by injuries. Previously the method of providing platelets in an emergency was to
take whole blood from previously screened volunteers. However four
donors are needed to produce one adult dose and once a donor has donated they cannot donate again for at least 12 weeks. The new Apheresis procedure produces an adult dose of platelets, from a single donor, in approximately 45mins. As the process only takes platelets, the donor has no ill effects and can donate again within 14 days. Unveiling the hi tech machine at DVD, DE&S Chief of Defence Materiel Land, Lt General Dick Applegate said, “Medical care on operations is rightly recognised as being second to none. Blood is an essential part of the military supply chain and the demand for platelets has increased as we are using a more aggressive approach in the treatment of massive blood loss. Using the new machine will give our medics increased flexibility during urgent
