Biological Threat Detectors

FLIR Systems, Inc.
Wilsonville, OR

FLIR Systems, Inc. announced recently that it has received a delivery order for FLIR IBAC™ 2 biological agent detector systems to support the United States (U.S.) Forces Korea (USFK). The delivery order is under a 10-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract in support of the Joint United States Forces Korea Portal and Integrated Threat Recognition (JUPITR) program led by the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD). The order is valued at $4 million with deliveries beginning in July 2018.

The FLIR IBAC 2 is a real-time air monitor based on UV laser induced fluorescence (LIF) technology that operates autonomously 24/7 with no consumables and alarms in less than 60 seconds when an airborne bio-threat, such as spore, viral, cellular, and protein toxins, are present. It then collects, preserves, and transmits data to command and control centers via Ethernet, RS-232, or optional embedded wireless (900 MHz or 2.4 GHz).

The system, which features detection algorithms for indoor and outdoor use, operates as part of a network configuration in “first tier” building protection systems, or via battery power to provide mobile detection capability. Data is stored on an internal 2 GB MicroSD memory card, which is enough to store over a year's worth of data. Sensitivity is rated at <100 particles/L of air.

There are currently more than 1,500 FLIR IBAC 2 units operating worldwide, making it the most widely deployed biological trigger available.
