- 4 separate stations separated by a vessel style hatch with built-in window
- Include a Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS)
JPdM CBRNE A&RS requests that an information paper along with any 3rd party test reports/data be submitted as part of the response. Technical capabilities, operator interface, required ancillary equipment, product lifespan support considerations, and cost information is sought.
Further details are available via Solicitation Number: W911SR-18-R-TRAILER. The deadline to submit white papers is 28 Nov 2017 at 5:00 pm Eastern.
