Russia’s Rosoboronexport JSC (part of the Rostec State Corporation) is ready to supply to international customers (especially in Africa) with advanced means for diagnostics, treatment and localization of viral and bacterial infections.
This equipment is adapted for the use in hot and tropical climate. Besides the COVID-19, it can also be used to combat outbreaks of Ebola and other infectious diseases.
“Today, Rosoboronexport can offer to its partners a complete set of means and equipment to effectively manage most epidemic threats, including novel virus infections. Our catalog lists mobile hospitals with units for diagnostics and treatment of contagious diseases, control and disinfection stations, and modular facilities for isolation and observation of quarantined persons. They are self-contained, comfortable for the personnel and patients, and can be installed within short time constraints, from one to six days,” said Alexander A. Mikheev, Director General of Rosoboronexport.
Rosoboronexport offers its partners a module-built mobile field hospital (MFH) designed and manufactured by Proekt-Technika Corporation.
In its standard version, the hospital can provide qualified medical assistance to wounded and sick people (up to 300 people a day). About 30 people can be hospitalized for up to 30 days. At the customer’s option, the patient capacity of the MFH, the bed availability and the number of consultation rooms can be increased according to the customer’s requirements.
The list and quantity of the medical equipment and inventory may vary according to the specialty and the patient capacity of the hospital, availability supplies to restock the inventory in the deployment area, and other requirements of the customer.
Rosoboronexport is ready to supply additional specialized modules and medical equipment, including isolation wards, in required quantities.
The hospital is partially or fully mobile, as it uses its own motor vehicles (URAL or KAMAZ cross-country container trucks); when traveling long distances, it can be transported by rail, air, river or sea. Medical modules can be mounted on the customer’s motor vehicles (subject to necessary adaptation).
The box vans are operated both on the chassis and on the ground. To remove the body of the truck from the chassis, a crane or special cargo-handling devices should be used. Advanced life-support systems guarantee a comfortable working environment for the personnel in various climate zones at temperatures of up to +50C.
In addition, Rosoboronexport offers to its partners a self-contained field camp with a closed-loop life support system for up to 500 people (APL-500). It is designed to create necessary infrastructure in wildland. The camp can provide a comfortable environment for quarantined people in case of an epidemic risk.
The camp is fully self-contained, thanks to availability of sanitation and hygiene modules, water storage and purification modules, food storage modules, a kitchen, a bakery, a power station, air conditioners, modules for waste reception, disinfection and disposal. The persons accommodated in the camp can be observed using medical support modules.
The camp can have a checkpoint module, supplied by Rosoboronexport separately. It can be separately stationed at the borders of areas in which quarantine is enforced, in order to check, screen and test the persons moving between cities, towns or areas and prevent the spread of contagious and viral diseases.
The Russian-made mobile field hospitals and self-contained camps offered by Rosoboronexport have undergone tough tests in actual hostilities and within the framework of rescue and relief operations of the EMERCOM of Russia, as well as in peacekeeping missions, and actions of law-enforcement, security and civil defense agencies of other countries. Everywhere the Russian products performed very well and were highly commended by medical personnel and patients.
In addition to the means for diagnostics, treatment and isolation of sources of epidemic threats, Rosoboronexport is prepared to supply to international customers technical supervision systems to monitor compliance with the quarantine and self-isolation regime of individuals.
Using the Safe City complex designed with involvement of companies affiliated with Rostec State Corporation, over 200 cases of violation of the self-isolation regime have been identified in Moscow since the establishment of the high alert regime on March 5, 2020.
