Bruker today announced the award of a contract for an additional 40 systems from the Improved Point Detection System – Lifecycle Replacement (IPDS-LR) program through the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) for use by the United States Navy. The overall effort is being managed by the Joint Project Manager for Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Contamination Avoidance (JPM NBC CA). The deliveries of systems under this contract are scheduled to begin late 2012 and continue into 2013. The total contract value to Bruker under this new award is approximately $4.8 million.
The IPDS-LR system is based on Bruker’s RAID-S2, a trace gas detector for the detection of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This system utilizes Bruker’s proprietary high-performance ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) technology. The RAID-S2 is designed for long-term monitoring of ambient air for the presence of hazardous chemical vapors in the interior or exterior of ships, buildings or shelters.
