Cobham Life Support, Davenport, has received a new multimillion-dollar contract from the U.S. Air Force’s Air Combat Command.
The $3 million contract is for Deployable Oxygen Generation System-Medium, or DOGS-M, systems, adding to the company’s line of medical oxygen products.
The initial contract is valued at $3 million, with a total program value estimated at $20 million, company officials said in a news release.
“The DOGS-M is the new standard in point-of-use medical oxygen generation and cylinder recharging capability, being rugged, portable, reliable and safe,” said Kelly Coffield, president of Cobham Life Support. “The availability of high-volume medical oxygen provides the medical practitioner with flexibility for respiratory treatment in the field.”
The system is a cost-savings alternative to cylinders, providing users with logistics and storage space savings.
Cobham Life Support specializes in life support and personal survival equipment systems, including oxygen systems for aviators and astronauts, crew restraints, flotation gear and crew and cargo release mechanisms.
