1 min read

The U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency will deploy a new portable digital radiography system developed for deployed medical, special operations and mortuary affairs units of the service branch.

The Army said Tuesday the PDRS is built to replace the branch’s legacy X-ray generator and accompanying computerized reader system.

The Aberdeen Test and Evaluation Center, Information Security and Engineering Command and Army Medical Center Department Center and School respectively conducted environmental, cybersecurity and operational tests on the system.

The PDRS integrated product team consists of the USAMMA National Maintenance Program, Marine CorpsNavy, Defense Logistics Agency‘s troop support division and AMCDCS’ Capabilities Development Integration Directorate.

PDRS is the Army’s first medical technology to obtain an authority to operate via a new process that integrates risk management and security activities into the system development life cycle.

Diego Gomez-Morales, a USAMMA equipment specialist, said the platform will be fielded with a training support package that includes a guide for operators and maintenance teams.

He added the Navy and Marine Corps will also implement the system as part of efforts to standardize military health systems.
