The Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear & Explosives (CBRNE) Directorate of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency (PFPA) is conducting market research for acquisition of a new biological threat detection system for the Pentagon.
PFPA provides scientific and technical advice on Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) threats, vulnerabilities, defenses and consequence management affecting the Pentagon Reservation and for DoD activities and DoD occupied facilities within the National Capitol Region.
The CBRNE Directorate is responsible for the acquisition, deployment, and maintenance of CBRNE equipment for detection and monitoring of CBRNE threats and protection of Pentagon personnel.
PFPA CBRNE is specifically seeking information on biological detection systems to replace the current TCAN biological detector. Desired capabilities include:
- Accurate detection, identification and quantification the particle size of the biological threats, to include toxins, inside the Pentagon in five minutes or less.
- Capable of communicating data and alarms in near real-time to an integrating system at regular intervals.
- Provide information that can be used to determine and confirm the relative location of an interior biological release.
The anticipated initial period of performance is for one year beginning in Sept. 2015.
