DOD Program Office Taps LMI for CBRN Defense Services
LMI has received a task order from the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense to support its logistics and medical business area. The task order continues the services that LMI has provided JPEO-CBRND since 2019.
JPEO-CBRND is a component of the Chemical and Biological Defense Program under the Department of Defense. Its function is to develop defenses against CBRN threats to American warfighters.
LMI’s Pete Pflugrath said in a press release that his organization is thrilled to continue helping JPEO-CBRND carry out its mission by, among other things, helping with engineering development and manufacturing medical products.
Pflugrath, executive vice president of markets and growth, and a member of the Potomac Officers Club, said, “We are proud to work alongside government leaders and product developers to ensure the most effective CBRND capabilities are developed, manufactured, and delivered to the Joint Forces at the right time.”
The task order was awarded under the Joint Enterprise-OMNIBUS Program, Engineering, and Technical Support contract vehicle and comes with a three-year period of performance, LMI said.
The DOD has elsewhere worked with various contractors to address CBRN threats.
In 2021, the DOD awarded Neya Systems a contract to develop a system that would control the CBRN sensors on a robot. The deal was awarded in support of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.
That same year, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency awarded Leidos a contract for protective equipment that could neutralize chemical and biological threats. The award was part of DARPA’s Personalized Protective Biosystem program.
