Statesville, N.C.-based Doosan Portable Power participated as an exhibitor in the 2010 Marine South tradeshow at Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejuene, N.C., in April. The Blackhawk MVS6 mobile video surveillance unit was displayed, along with a photographic showcase of additional products used in military project applications.
“A great relationship has been fostered over the years between the U.S. Marines and Doosan Portable Power,” said Marc James, government sales manager for Doosan Portable Power. “Among the products we’ve supplied to them, the Marine Corps MP260 air compressor has the highest profile, and the Marines have been using them for over 20 years.
“The Blackhawk MVS6 can provide an operational advantage for the Marines, and Marine South provided a good opportunity to showcase that product for military use,” he said. “Because of the Blackhawk security and remote surveillance focus, there was a lot of interest from military communications and security officers with specific operations needs.”
The Blackhawk MVS6 is a security solution that allows remote security monitoring of outdoor areas with an extra set of eyes to effectively monitor and record images. It uses a self-contained power unit, which employs a hybrid power system of solar and diesel technology to provide up to six months of uninterrupted remote operation. Its wireless technology makes remote operation simple yet flexible, and its anti-theft features ensure that it is a solid investment for any environment.
Marine South 2010 exhibitors offered equipment and systems for all phases of ground and air combat, from pre-engagement reconnaissance to close combat, long-range support and continuing tactical operations, including defensive and force protection missions.
Military professionals attending Marine South included Marine commands from Camp Lejeune; Marine Corps Air Station, Cherry Point, N.C.; and Marine Corps Air Station, New River, N.C. Among them were key decision-makers in the defense equipment and systems procurement chain.
