AirBoss to deliver protective equipment for ADF’s Land 2110 Phase 1B

Leidos Australia has awarded a contract to AirBoss Defense for the delivery of protective equipment to the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Land 2110 Phase 1B programme.

Leidos Australia has awarded a contract to AirBoss Defense for the delivery of protective equipment to the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Land 2110 Phase 1B programme.

The Land 2110 Phase 1B Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defence (CBRND) Capability Facilities project will provide force protection to its deployed personnel, assigned coalition personnel and Phase 1B designated civilians, both offshore and within Australia.

Under the $11m deal, AirBoss will be responsible for providing Leidos with critical personal protective equipment to support the ADF CBRND programme.

In addition to any potential revenue from an initial five-year support phase, the contract will cover the delivery of protective gear such as gloves, overboots, and the recently launched Low Burden Mask.

Expected to begin next year, deliveries of the equipment are slated to continue until 2023.

“The Land 2110 Phase 1B project aims to provide facilities at 14 sites across Australia to support the training of personnel against exposure to toxic industrial materials and CBRN weapons.”

In addition, the capabilities are focused on providing increased support to other government agencies in domestic CBRN incidents.

AirBoss Defense’s LBM has been designed and developed to serve as the most advanced gas mask in the world, equipped with the latest advanced lens, optical viewing area, improved fit and reduced breathing resistance.

AirBoss Defense designs, develops and manufactures CBRN personal protective equipment, as well as offering protection against communicable diseases and respiratory threats for individuals.

The Land 2110 Phase 1B project aims to provide new and updated facilities at 14 sites across Australia to support the training of personnel against exposure to toxic industrial materials and CBRN weapons.

The $243.5m contract for the Land 2110 Phase 1B project was awarded to Leidos Australia last month.
