Along with SAIC, the US DoD awarded the contract to nine other companies, including Aktarius, Allied Technical Services, AQuate II, Axseum Solutions, KD Analytical Consulting, Murtech, Omega Consultants, Camber Corporation and Battelle, reported DefenseWorld.

The US Army maintains an inventory of chemical and biological detection, personal protection, and equipment in the US and ten other countries worldwide.

It recently announced new measures to manage toxins used by the Biological Select Agents and Toxins Task Force.

The move follows an investigation into the accidental shipment of live anthrax spores from Dugway Proving Ground, Utah, to labs in nine countries and the US last year.
