Saab Australia has selected SME Global Defence Solutions (GDS) as the preferred soft shelter supplier for JP2060 Phase 3, Australia’s Deployable Health Capability (DHC) program.
Saab and GDS have also entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to work together to further advance complementary capabilities in deployable force infrastructure.
“This strategic partnership is a part of Saab’s ongoing commitment to partnering with leading Australian SMEs to deliver superior outcomes for our nation’s defence,” said Andy Keough, Saab Australia Managing Director.
"We look forward to working with the GDS team and together creating solutions that will equip our Australian troops with world class deployable health capability.”
“We are delighted to be able to offer this comprehensive soft shelter solution to Saab and ultimately to the Australian Defence Force. This really is at the core of what we do as a business and we are proud to have an opportunity to deliver these truly innovative shelters,” said Laurie Koster, Managing Director, GDS.
GDS will join Saab and its capability partners Aspen Medical, Philips Healthcare Australia & NZ, Broadspectrum and Marshall Land Systems to deliver and support deployable military and humanitarian hospitals for use in Australia and overseas.
