Oct 19 2018 Read 264 Times

The United States Department of Defense (DOD) Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEOCBRND), has awarded FLIR Systems a grant for development of a chemical detector in support of the Multi-Phase Chemical Agent Detector (MPCAD) program. 
The Other Transaction Authority Agreement (OTA) is valued at $28.7 million, with execution extending through mid-2022. A modified version of the FLIR Griffin™ G510, which will enable identification of chemicals at low levels in aerosol, gas, liquid, and solid phases of matter, will form the basis of FLIR’s MPCAD solution. 
“We are proud to be selected as part of the US Military’s critical next generation chemical sensing program,” said James Cannon, Chief Executive Officer at FLIR. “This award enables our team to further fulfill its mission to protect the lives and livelihoods of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines against the threat of chemical attack.” Work under the contract is expected to be performed at FLIR’s facility in West Lafayette, Indiana, US.
