Determined to catch up with rival IBM, Agfa of Ridgefield Park, NJ, has formed a team dedicated to securing PACS contracts to military facilities under the Defense Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (DIN-PACS) project. Agfa's MIL-PACS team consists of more than a dozen professionals in image networking, systems integration, product design, sales, and other areas related to DIN-PACS. The team will also include representatives from the other vendors in Agfa's DIN-PACS consortium, and will be advised by a board of military radiologists.

Agfa is trying to make up for ground lost to the consortium led by IBM, which has won $32.3 million in DIN-PACS contracts since bidding opened earlier this year (SCAN 4/1/98). Agfa, meanwhile, has yet to announce its first DIN-PACS sale publicly. DIN-PACS has a purchasing ceiling of $250 million this year.
