AirBoss Defense Group today announced the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has selected the AirBoss Molded Glove for its Joint Service Lightweight Integrated Suit Technology Block 2 Glove Upgrade (JB2GU) CBRN glove program contract. This is a three year contract expected to be worth up to an aggregate amount of $18.5 million.
CBRN gloves are in continuous demand by the Department of Defense and the AirBoss Molded Glove (AMG) was designed to provide superior protection against CBRN threats and a wide range of toxic industrial chemicals. The glove was developed to provide optimal fit, comfort, dexterity, and tactility while fully integrating with all currently fielded CBRN suits.
AirBoss Defense Group holds the current sole source contract for this critical personal protective equipment (PPE) requirement.
The AMG is utilized by CBRN programs in more than forty countries, with over 6.1 million pair sold to date.
“ADG is pleased to continue providing our unique protective and survivability solutions to the Defense Logistics Agency,” said Patrick Callahan, CEO of ADG. “The AMG is a key component of CBRN protection systems procured by the Department of Defense and we look forward to providing this critical glove system now and in the future to ensure the safety of our warfighters in austere environments and challenging conditions.”
