Chemring Group PLC ("Chemring") is pleased to announce that its US subsidiary, Chemring Detection Systems, has been awarded a $28.5 million delivery order against a multi-year IDIQ contract to supply chemical detection systems to the US Army. The Edgewood Contracting Division of the US Army Contracting Command-APG has ordered more than 100 Joint Services Lightweight Standoff Chemical Agent Detectors (“JSLSCAD”). The JSLSCAD remotely detects and identifies multiple chemical agent vapour clouds at ranges up to 5km. These systems will be installed in the Stryker Nuclear Biological Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicle.
Mark Papworth, Chief Executive of Chemring, said, "Chemring continues to provide reliable JSLSCADs to the US Army, and we are proud to support the production of this critical equipment. This award is especially important in light of the current international chemical threats. The JSLSCAD offers a unique capability that provides excellent long range, chemical agent detection for the Armed Forces."
