The “NBC” bioinstrumentation vehicle which can offer mobile and rapid bioinstrumentation technology platform to fight against sudden epidemic outbreak and anti-terrorism in peace time and carry out NBC medical rescue in war time. It can be used as a mobile lab for bioinstrumentation.
The field operation vehicle has the function of remote medical consultation, which can link the forefront field medical agencies and rear hospitals to carry out remote expert consultation and offer diagnosis and treatment guidance for the rescue of the wounded under emergency maneuver conditions, and support the early-phase treatment and special treatment of the critically wounded from a distance by relying on the remote medical information network of the PLA.
