    General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) and L3Harris Technologies have enhanced the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities of MQ-9 Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS).

    The MQ-9 Predator B series of RPAS has been integrated with WESCAM MX-20 Electro-optical / infrared (EO/IR) system.

    This integration will provide advanced targeting capability to the aircraft.
    Additionally, the WESCAM MX-20 EO/IR system will support multiple Precision Guided Munitions (PGM) missions.

    On 18 February, a series of test flights were conducted to showcase the advanced ISR capabilities such as locate and track targets at long stand-off ranges.

    GA-ASI CEO Linden Blue said: “The GA-ASI and L3Harris teams have worked closely over the past year to ensure the successful integration of this sophisticated system. “This is a significant milestone and we look forward to the enduring relationship and growing opportunities with L3Harris WESCAM.”

    The WESCAM MX-20 features multi-spectral high-sensitivity sensors. These can be operated during day, low-light and night missions.
    The system also functions from ultra-high altitudes, with skillful detection and accurate recognition capabilities.

    L3Harris WESCAM general manager Jacques Comtois said: “L3Harris is proud to partner with GA-ASI to deliver sophisticated technologies for persistent surveillance missions and evolving battlefields. Being a Team SkyGuardian partner allows us to support our technology’s modular growth path with unprecedented levels of innovation and business opportunities globally for leading unmanned aircraft system programmes.”

    In May last year, the two companies integrated the same technology system onto SkyGuardian RPAS. The integration was proved effective following tests conducted in adverse weather conditions in Canada.

This partnership will support elevating the delivery of medical education in the country through research collaborations, continuing professional development opportunities, and enhancing clinical training for our medical students and future residents and fellows. Our philosophy, at MBRU, is to teach our students to be professional communicators, health advocates, collaborators and leaders; and we believe that such partnerships enable us to create medical experts who demonstrate these characteristics.

The group previously signed MOUs with a number of leading universities and colleges to train students in nursing, pharmacy, radiology and laboratory specialties. Our MOU with MBRU is considered the first for medical college students as we take part in preparing our future generation of physicians. The students will have access to advanced technologies and internationally accredited systems at our facilities within multiple specialties such as endocrinology, fertility and IVF as well as ophthalmology,” Mr. Majd added.

    Dr. Sadoon Sami Sadoon, Chief Medical Officer at Danat Al Emarat said, “The first batch of students will be trained at Danat Al Emarat Hospital, HealthPlus Centers and Moorfields Eye Hospital Abu Dhabi during this year.”

Our clinicians are conducting extensive research and studies that will be published in international journals, and will be working closely with MBRU,” Dr. Sadoon concluded.

    26 October 2019, UAE: United Eastern Medical Services (UEMedical) in Abu Dhabi announced the execution of the constructions work of Danat Al Emarat Hospital for Women & Children expansion project, which includes the construction of a new building adjacent to the current building in Abu Dhabi Gate City. Mr. Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa Al Hammadi, CEO and Managing Director of UEMedical, and Mr. Mariano Gonzalez, CEO of Danat Al Emarat Hospital broke ground on the six-story building in the presence of a number of officials from UEMedical group and the project constructors, contractors and consultants.

    Alongside the groundbreaking ceremony, Mr. Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa Al Hammadi said, “After conducting a thorough market study, and as we witnessed Danat Al Emarat’s growing patients’ volumes and the positive clinical outcomes, the decision was to invest 300M Dirhams to build a new facility adjacent to the existing hospital expanding our capacity to almost double and expanding the range of medical services offered. With the expansion, UEMedical assets increased to a value of 4.2 Billion Dirhams. The new building consists of 6 floors highly equipped, and includes 100 new beds, increasing the total number of hospital beds to 225.”

    “As we continue to build an advanced network of healthcare facilities for our nation, this expansion comes in line with the growing interest in women and child healthcare services, which are highly supported by H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union, GWU, President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation, FDF,” Mr. Al Shorafa added.

    He also said that the decision to start the expansion project followed detailed studies on the needs and requirements in Abu Dhabi, based on the Department of Health Abu Dhabi reports, identifying specialties needed in the Emirate, capacity gaps and beds required especially in the fields of pediatrics and obstetrics & gynecology.

    “Danat Al Emarat Hospital is considered a referral center for high risk pregnancies, encompassing a full fledge fetal medicine department, level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), pediatric surgery and pediatric subspecialties such as pediatric gastroenterology, orthopedics, neurology, cardiology and more; in addition to an advanced minimal invasive gynecology surgery center and bariatric and metabolic surgery center, both accredited as Centers of Excellence by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC). With the new facility, we will be able to accommodate the growing needs of Abu Dhabi’s population and beyond.”

    The project will be completed by end of 2020, with 3 contracting and consulting companies overseeing the project; including Eastern International LLC, Amar Golden Design, and the renowned American architectural firm HKS, who designed the existing tower of Danat Al Emarat.

    Mr. Mariano Gonzalez, CEO of Danat Al Emarat Hospital stated, “the expansion will include 3 additional high-tech operating rooms, 16 equipped delivery rooms, and additional 30 consultation rooms for the outpatient specialty clinics. The expansion will also include a bigger pharmacy in the new building and a larger neonatal intensive care unit (NICU Level III) increasing our capacity to 40 NICU beds fully equipped to serve our newborns in line with advanced international standards and protocols.”

    “The expansion will be accompanied by an increase in the medical and technical staff, attracting over 500 new employees, including 100 physicians in different specialties and 200 nurses who will join us during the final stages of the constructions project by the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2020,” Mr. Mariano concluded.
