Smiths Detection has been awarded an indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction office (CWMD) to provide radiation portal monitors (RPM).
The RPM is a passive checkpoint which can detect potentially dangerous radiation emitting material which passes through its detection zone. The portal is capable of scanning trucks, vehicles, containers, packages and people.
Smiths Detection is partnered with Radiation Solutions, Inc. and Silverside Detectors Inc. to utilize gamma and neutron detection technology respectively.
The IDIQ contract with CWMD has a $291m ceiling, allows for multiple orders of SDI products and services under a single contract, and provides flexibility for the customer in follow-on order decisions.
