This notice announces the intent by the U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA) in support of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System (AFMES) to negotiate on a sole source bases IAW FAR 13.106 with Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. Only Siemens, of 40 Liberty Blvd, Malvern, PA, 19355. Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. can provide a mobile C-Arm device capable of having both fluoroscopic imaging and single shot x-ray operating simultaneously. The authority cited for this procurement is under 13.106-1(b)(1)(i): Only one source reasonably available.

AFMES has a requirement for a mobile C-Arm device capable of providing medical images in the field. This device supports the mission by allowing the medical examiners to examine regions that are not easily accessible during autopsies. The C-arm scanner contributes to the medicolegal death investigations by providing new information that could not be obtained by an autopsy alone and allows investigation of anatomic regions that are not easily available for autopsies. Scanning is useful in cases of gunshot injuries and explosions; it allows shrapnel to be located easily. Additionally, in cases where the deceased needs to be identified, the mobility of the C-Arm allows medical examiners to position the scanner in a specific area that needs a closer look rather than scanning the entire body. The expectation of the vendor will be to deliver, setup, configure the C-Arm and provide onsite technical and software support training to staff members.

AFMES requires the C-Arm to have both fluoroscopic imaging and single shot x-ray operating simultaneously. This allows the continuous viewing of foreign objects. In the case of AFMES mission, the medical examiners need precision and accuracy when performing autopsies. It's imperative for examiners to have the ability to perform a single shot x-ray and to press and hold the button to allow for fluoroscopic imaging.
