Lexington, Mass.-based Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc., announces that it has been awarded a 10-year sole source contract for its digital radiography (DR) systems from the U.S. Navy and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).

Under the contract, Fujifilm will outfit U.S. Naval Fleet vessels with the company’s DR x-ray room systems, featuring advanced detector technology along with a floor-mounted room. The initial DR system delivery and installation is slated for a new U.S. Navy ship later this year.

“Fujifilm is honored to be awarded this significant contract from the U.S. Navy as it speaks to the confidence and level of trust government officials place in our technology and our Fujifilm staff,” said Lou Cavallaro, Director, Government Business Sales, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “This achievement reflects Fujifilm’s ongoing commitment to developing the highest quality, innovative digital radiography technology for every application.”

This Sole Source DR Standardization contract was awarded to Fujifilm after a two-year evaluation and comparison with numerous DR technologies. The U.S. Navy and DLA performed a comprehensive assessment of each manufacturer’s system technology, functionality, adaptability, service support infrastructure, and cybersecurity compliance. Fujifilm was selected as the vendor that best met or exceeded the U.S. Navy’s criteria.
