Cassidian provides technical support for Afghanistan medical evacuations
The German Federal Office of Defence Technology and Procurement (BWB) has ordered eight units of Cassidian’s mobile EUA operations support system to help with air medical evacuation from Afghanistan.
From the end of this year, German Army Aviation will be in charge of providing forward air medical evacuation from the country using Cassidian’s NH90 helicopters. The FwdAirMedEvac from helicopters will provide a solid base for emergency medical care for German soldiers in crisis areas.
The EUA operations support system combines operational command and control with technical logistic support. Its current adaptation complements its extension ordered in May last year for the support helicopter Tiger ASGARD (Afghanistan Stabilisation German Army Rapid Deployment) which, from October 2012, will also be used to support the German mission in Afghanistan.
The EUA operations support system, developed by Cassidian, integrates the capabilities of the German helicopters into the integrated military command, which is ensured via the German Army C3I System (FüInfoSys H), for both MedEvac and armed support missions."
