The Army Logistics Innovation Agency, the field operating agency of the Army G-4, tested the use of MEMS RFID for DEPMEDS
at Sierra Army Depot at the request of the Army Materiel Command and the Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command, in collaboration with the U.
The new ISO prototype also offers users protection from chemical and biological agents, something the current DEPMEDS
ISO can't offer without extra labor and supplies.
A major component of the CP DEPMEDS
is the M-28 Simplified Collective Protection Equipment.
is the term generically applied to any collection of medical and dental equipment and related facilities, materials, and supplies needed to sustain a desired level of medical care in a field environment for military, humanitarian, and disaster relief operations anywhere in the world.
The GEM Stat instrument, selected for the Army from a field of five competing blood gas instruments, is ideal for the DEPMEDS
environment due to its small size, ease of use with minimal training requirement and test menu," said Robert G.
