The molded glove contract with the DLA was awarded as a part of the agency's JB2GU CBRN glove program, according to AirBoss, and it is expected to be worth about $18.5 million over the next three years.
"ADG currently holds the single source contract for this requirement and is pleased to have again been selected as the supplier of choice for this critical personal protective equipment," the company said in a statement.
AirBoss said the molded glove provides "superior protection against CBRN threats and a wide range of toxic industrial chemicals" and provides "optimal fit, comfort and functionality."
AirBoss' Bandolier order is an expansion of the partner nation's ongoing program of record for the Bandolier and is expected to worth $3.8 million over a period of 12 months.
The Bandolier, a lightweight and modular energetic system that can be employed across mobility, counter mobility and survivability mission profiles, is designed to bridge the identified capability gap between large, complex, single role explosive charges and standard bulk demolitions, according to AirBoss.
"We look forward to providing DLA with this critical glove system now and in the future to ensure the safety of war fighters in austere environments and challenging conditions," Bitsakakis said. "We are also excited to have extended ADG's supplier relationship for the Bandolier line charge system. The Bandolier is an important part of ADG's portfolio of survivability solutions and demonstrates the ADG team's ability to innovate to meet the unique needs of its customers."
