NIITEK awarded HMDS delivery order

24th April 2013 - 17:35 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Chemring’s US subsidiary, Non-Intrusive Inspection Technology (NIITEK) has been awarded an additional delivery order to provide spares for the Husky Mounted Detection System (HMDS) to the US Army. 

The delivery order is valued at $24 million, and supplements a $9 million order received in February 2013. Together, these orders are part of the $579 million multi-year HMDS ground penetrating radar indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract that was awarded on 30 April 2012. All items will be delivered on a firm fixed price basis by April 2014.

The NIITEK HMDS is a high-performance Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system which functions on blast resistant vehicles to provide real-time identification of anti-vehicular landmines and other explosive hazards on main supply routes and open areas such as minefields.

Mark Papworth, chief executive, Chemring, said: ‘NIITEK’s HMDS products perform an essential role in protecting troops against the threat of improvised explosive devices. We are delighted that these additional delivery orders enable us to continue our proven support to the US Army, and that NIITEK will continue to deliver critical spares to ensure their fleet is mission ready.’
