British companies get green light to press ahead with new Army vehicle plans, Defence Minister announces.
A programme to supply the British Army with a new fleet of eight-wheeled armoured vehicles
has taken a major step forward, Defence Minister Stuart Andrew has announced at one of
the world’s leading land equipment events.
The Army intends to make an initial purchase of over 500 Boxer vehicles, and the Defence
Minister has today announced that British suppliers have been given the green light to bring
forward concrete plans for the project, which is set to support at least 1,000 UK jobs.
The Tempus Pro monitors, designed and manufactured by Remote Diagnostic Technologies (RDT), can help facilitate emergency treatment for Royal Navy, British Army, and RAF personnel if they are injured or taken ill on active duty.
The lightweight, robust and portable monitor, which is battery operated, can be used on land, at sea and in the air. It transmits medical data such as blood pressure, pulse and respiratory rate in real time back to medical facilities and treatment teams, giving them a better understanding of a patient’s condition ahead of time.
