Allen-Vanguard
: 23 January, 2008  (New Product)
The USA DoD operational trials are underway in Iraq on new technologies that include a system developed by Med-Eng Inc. (Med-Eng), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Allen-Vanguard (Allen-Vanguard), to measure and understand Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) resulting from a soldier's exposure to high-impact events such as an improvised explosive device (IED). The DoD contract award was for several thousand systems at a value of approximately US$3.3M.
Allen-Vanguard President and CEO David E. Luxton commented, 'This technology is another example of high-potential new products we are able to bring to market derived from our deep, core expertise in explosive threats and their effects on the human body. We are very pleased to be working with DoD on this important first step of a larger and prominent program to improve monitoring and understanding of TBI, which has become a high priority with the prevalence of IED incidents in theaters of conflict.'
