M1022-A1 SYSTEM FIELDED WITH EADS RTAF FIELD HOSPITAL
CDK’s M1022-A1 Dolly Set Mobilizer system was fielded with an EADS/Royal Thai Air Force Field Hospital program in Bangkok in July, 2010.
The EADS designed TransHospital consists of a rescue station with staff accommodations and includes 2 large tents, a rescue container, a connection module, a water and power supply container and a transport container. The TransHospital can be transported by truck, train or vessel, and Thailand’s system can also be transported in a C-130 Hercules medium tactical transport aircraft.
The CDK M1022-A1 system is used to self-load and transport the associated ISO Containers, load them onto other transport vehicles and trailers, and to load and offload the containers to/from C-130 aircraft.
CDK provided a one-week training and acceptance program in Bangkok to train RTAF personnel and obtain certification for road transport, trailer loading, and C-130 aircraft transport.
Final acceptance of the system included C-130 loading, tie down and an actual flight to simulate hospital delivery to a remote location.
