Hamilton Sundstrand Awarded $40 Million Contract for Chemical Detection Equipment.
Hamilton Sundstrand has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract by the U.S. Department of Defense Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) to provide up to 156 Chemical Biological Mass Spectrometer II (CBMS II) devices.
The contract is valued at nearly $40 million. Hamilton Sundstrand is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.
Hamilton Sundstrand's CBMS II is a fully militarized, mass spectrometer-based system capable of detecting chemical warfare agents from reconnaissance vehicles without the need for reagents or other consumables.
"This award positions Hamilton Sundstrand as a key systems supplier to the JPEO-CBD, but more importantly, the CBMS II will provide safety for our military personnel on critical missions in extremely hostile settings," said Robert Leduc, Hamilton Sundstrand president of Flight Systems and U.S. Government Classified Programs.
