General Dynamics proveerá detectores de agentes químicos

CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 14, 2004. General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products, a business unit of General Dynamics, was awarded an $8.6 million option to an existing contract by the U.S. Army Robert Morris Acquisition Center, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., for the production of 2,000 Improved Chemical Agent Monitors.
The contract being amended was initially awarded in December 1995 and had a value of $14.3 million; this option extends deliveries through October 2005 and will bring the total number of units produced to over 15,000, for a total value of $66 million.
Used to monitor chemical agent contamination and confirm decontamination effectiveness, the lightweight, handheld Improved Chemical Agent Monitor can detect a range of nerve and blister agents in minute quantities at atmospheric pressures. It is the primary post-attack chemical agent monitor in use worldwide, and is currently deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq.
General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products is a world leader in the field of chemical and biological agent detection. The Improved Chemical Agent Monitor production program is a mainstay of General Dynamics’ detection and protection business, with sales for production, refurbishment and spares totaling over $75 million since General Dynamics began production of the unit in 1997. All work will be performed at General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products’ new, state-of the-art Charlotte, N.C., detection and protection facility, which will celebrate its grand opening later this year.
General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products provides a broad range of system solutions for military and commercial applications. The company designs, develops and produces high-performance armament systems; a full range of advanced composite-based products; biological and chemical detection systems; and mobile shelter systems.
