Med-Eng has received a five-year indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract from the US Air Force (USAF) to provide its EOD 10 bomb suit for the protection of explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) teams, the company announced on 12 April. 

The contract has a maximum value of $15 million and will allow the USAF to procure up to 305 EOD 10 bomb suits during the five-year term.

The EOD 10 bomb suit and accessories provide multi-threat blast protection and ergonomic flexibility. It features voice activation, integrated cooling and compatibility with chemical and biological protective equipment. The suit has been tested against threats representative of improvised explosive devices.

Rob Reynolds, VP, general manager, Med-Eng, said: ‘Med-Eng is honoured to provide equipment that will help protect the lives of the USAF’s EOD teams as they carry out critical, dangerous and life-saving missions.

‘Selecting Med-Eng and our EOD 10 suit demonstrates the USAF's confidence in our ability to meet the evolving threats and operational requirements facing our military EOD operators and public safety bomb technicians in even the harshest conditions.’
