Standoff Detection Equipment Development ORDER

ICx Technologies : 21 June, 2010  (Application Story)
US Defence Agency places order on ICx Technologies for integrated threat detection equipment for biological and chemical agents
ICx Technologies has recently been awarded two advanced technology demonstration (ATD) contracts by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) — the Hazard Mitigation Material and Equipment Restoration (HaMMER) and Rapid Area Sensitive Site Reconnaissance (RASR) programs.

HaMMER is aimed at developing an integrated system of decontaminants, applications and processes that provide a means to mitigate chemical and biological hazards. As part of the program, ICx will further develop its Agentase Disclosure Spray and its 'smart' strippable coatings which will detect the presence of chemical warfare agents on a surface and identify their location. With this information, first responders can focus their decontamination efforts and are able to immediately tell if their efforts were effective.

Under RASR, ICx will develop a semi-autonomous standoff detection system to provide rapid reconnaissance for hazardous chemicals, homemade-explosives and radioactive materials. As part of this project, ICx will integrate standoff detection and identification technologies with semi-autonomous mapping capability for the clearing of potentially hazardous areas.

"Advanced Technology Demonstrations, or ATDs, are a critical aspect of supplying new technologies to soldiers," said Colin Cumming, CEO of ICx Technologies. "ICx is pleased that our technologies and integration capabilities will be employed within these two important programs and anticipate successful technology transitions because of them."
