Chemring Detection Systems announced today that it has been awarded a Delivery Order under a Full Rate Production contract by the Aberdeen Contracting Command worth $25.2M for the production and delivery of 32 Joint Biological Point Detection Systems (JBPDS) and associated spare parts and services. These systems will be installed in the Stryker Nuclear Biological Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicle (NBCRV). Deliveries under this agreement will be made from March 2014 through July 2014.

The Joint Biological Point Detection System (JBPDS) provides automatic detection and identification of airborne biological agents at very low levels, triggers local and remote warning systems, and communicates threat information over standard communication systems. The JBPDS program is managed by the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD). This system is the only US Biological Detection system that went through the Whole System Live Agent Test (WSLAT). The JBPDS is manufactured and tested at the Chemring Detection Systems facility in Charlotte, NC.
