Fujifilm Medical Systems has been awarded a long-term sole-source contract from the U.S. government for its digital radiography (DR) systems.
Lexington, Massachusetts-based Fujifilm confirmed last month that the U.S. Navy and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) awarded it the 10-year contract to outfit Naval Fleet vessels with its DR x-ray room systems.
Fujifilm’s DR x-ray room systems include next-generation detector technology and a high-quality, compact, floor-mounted room with all of the latest features. The company anticipates the initial DR system delivery and installation will occur for a new U.S. navy ship later this year.
The Navy selected Fujifilm’s DR system on the back of a two-year evaluation and comparison with competitive technologies. The company was selected as the singular vendor that best met or exceeded the Navy’s standards and criteria, it said.
“Fujifilm is honored to be awarded this significant contract from the U.S. Navy as it speaks to the confidence and level of trust government officials place in our technology and our Fujifilm staff,” Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. director of government business sales Lou Cavallaro said in the release. “This achievement reflects Fujifilm’s ongoing commitment to developing the highest quality, innovative digital radiography technology for every application.”
